In memory of Prof Henry Halliday


It is with a profound sense of loss and sadness that we have learned about the passing of Prof Henry Lewis Halliday.

As a pioneer of surfactant therapy, world-renowned Neonatologist, longstanding Editor-in-Chief of the journal 'Neonatology' and a former President of the European Society for Paediatric Research, his research will continue to improve the lives of preterm babies and their families for generations to come.

Prof Halliday was a truly remarkable human being, who, despite his professional achievements, has always remained true to himself. A kind, modest and affectionate man, he will be greatly missed as a mentor, role-model, colleague and friend.

On behalf of the ESPR Council, Charles Roehr.
