It is with great sadness that we announce to all MACB members the sudden death of Professor Howard Morris, President of the IFCC. He passed away on Thursday, April 18, 2019. MACB sincere condolences go to his wife, Mrs Helen Martin, to the family, to the Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemists (AACB) and to the whole community of Laboratory Medicine specialists in Australia.

Professor Morris was an accomplished medical scientist, educator and administrator. Above all, he was a gentleman and a professional in all that he did. He will be remembered for his many contributions to Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine worldwide, especially in the area of Vitamin D and bone metabolism.

He worked tirelessly on IFCC Committees including his most recent role as President of IFCC.

His passing is a great lost to all of us.
