Dear EEMGS Members, today we share very sad news from the Institute of Experimental Medicine CAS:

“It is with deep sadness that we inform you about the recent passing of long-time collaborator and excellent scientist MUDr. Radim Šrám, DrSc.

Doctor Šrám was a world-renowned expert on the impact of environmental pollution on human health. He worked at the World Health Organization, where he helped prepare materials on the effect of air pollution on children’s genetic code. He has received numerous awards, such as the national Czech Head Award, the Jan Evangelista Purkyně Medal and the highest award of the Czech Academy of Sciences “De scientia et humanitate optime meritis”.

Doctor Šrám was highly respected for his excellent collaboration and the scientific legacy he left behind.

We express our sincere sympathies to his family and ask that you keep them in your thoughts at this difficult time.
