Andrew Johnson

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Andrew Johnson.

Andy was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and sadly lost his battle with the disease and passed away in the early hours of Sunday 27th July after a short but very packed retirement. During that time he enjoyed numerous holidays and cycling trips with his wife Jo whilst still keeping on top of many tasks on behalf of the Institute.

 Andy's contribution to IMI and the wider profession are too many to list in this short notice but the highlights include, Chairman 2009-2011, Education Committee Chair, Member of the Modernising Scientific Careers team, Membership Secretary and of course Webmaster. He was so well organised and up to the minute I am surprised this announcement hasn't already been posted.

 As an Institute we owe so much to Andy for the work he did, and as individuals we owe so much to him for just being a great guy, smiling to the end, enthusiastic and always at the cutting edge of our profession. 

 Our thoughts and condolences go to Andy's wife Jo and his family.

 Keep pedaling buddy...
