We have to share very sad news.
Professor Dr. István Ábrahám, professor at the Institute of Physiology of the Faculty of General Medicine of the University of Pécs, president of the Hungarian Neuroscience Society, tragically passed away on April 23, 2021.
He completed his Ph.D. studies at the Institute of Experimental Medicine under the supervision of Dr. Krisztina Kovács. After his P.D. defense, he moved to Otego, New Zeeland, and worked for the Otego University. Then he returned to Hungary, and in a couple of years, he became head of the Institute of Physiology of the University of Pécs.
When his busy schedule allowed him, he participated in our HSM conferences several times, sometimes with lectures, too. The loss of him is painful, and we will be missing his radiant, creative personality and friendly smile.
He was only fifty-four years old.
