In Memory of Shigenobu Nagataki

The ETA is deeply saddened to hear that Prof. Shigenobu Nagataki, an honorary member of the ETA, passed away on 12th November, aged 84. He was a prominent researcher in the thyroid field contributing with excellent works to our knowledge of the physiopathology of thyroid gland. He participated regularly in our congress discussing and presenting data, a man who surely will be greatly missed everyone who knew him. Our condolences go to his family and our thoughts are with them.

In Memory of Peter Laurberg

The ETA is shocked and deeply saddened to report that on June 20, 2016 Dr. Peter Laurberg, aged only 71, died following a car accident in Tbilisi, Georgia as he was walking with his wife, Grete, who survives the accident. Dr. Peter Laurberg was a leader in the field of thyroidology and past-President of our association. Peter was well known and respected for his tremendous achievement in the thyroid field. He became a member in 1978 and has been dedicated to many activities within the ETA – he was also a member of the Local Organizing Committee at the upcoming Annual Meeting in Copenhagen. Peter was always a prominent actor in any ETA annual meeting and was appreciated by all of us not only for his scientific contribution but also for his personality and humanity. Our condolences and sense of solidarity goes first of all to his wife Grete and his son. Peter was a wonderful man and we will miss him dearly.
