The loss of a founding father
Yves Le Gal, one of the founding fathers of ESMB, over the last years, an honorary member of the society, left us December last year. His achievements for marine biotechnology at the international stage were considerable, and he was one of the pioneers in his field of research. His passioned work and his leadership at the “Station Marine de Concarneau” as well as the launching of our society will be remembered for long times.
We, who worked closely with him, are feeling a particular responsibility to expand his legacy. The board of the ESMB send the deepest condolences to the family and friends.
