Dr Andy Vinter 1943 - 2019

It is with sadness that I share the news that Dr Andy Vinter passed away on Monday 16th December 2019 after a short illness. Andy was a great scientist, colleague and friend and will be hugely missed by all those who met him and whose lives were enriched by his warmth, passion for life and scientific integrity.

One of Andy’s favourite quotes was from Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self be true”, and I think it is very fitting to apply it to Andy himself, and especially how the quote continues: “And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

We will miss him greatly and remember him fondly. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Elaine and his children, Francesca and James at this very sad time.
