It is with great sadness that we announce that Professor Peter Lipton died suddenly on 25th November.

Peter was a popular, dedicated and highly respected member of Council, whose articulate and lively contributions to our debates will be sorely missed.

He chaired the Council’s Working Party on pharmacogenetics from 2002-2003, before becoming a full member of Council at the end of 2003.

An obituary by Peter's colleagues at the University of Cambridge can be found here.
