The Institute was greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Sir Christopher Dobson, Master of St John’s College, Cambridge on 8 September 2019.  A brilliant scientist and a kind and compassionate human being, his contribution to Alzheimers research was significant. He participated in a number of our activities including Maths meets Molecular Biology at INI (we referred to this event as "A Tale of Two Masters" as his co-speaker was Sir Gregory Winter, Master of Trinity College). He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
