In Memoriam Gérard Siest

On April 9th, the entire world of laboratory medicine lost a dominating figure, a pioneer, and an innovator in the field. Gérard Siest died just before his 80th birthday in an unexpected and unpredictable manner. Many of us recently met him in Madrid at the IFCC General Conference. He was smiling and bright as usual, with many projects to pursue and a passionate vision of future developments in several areas of our discipline, namely pharmacogenomics. As usual, he defended his projects and vision with humour and power. Only once, every one or two generations, a brilliant mind emerges with all the talent, vision and personal characteristics capable of influencing the entire field of laboratory medicine. Gérard Siest was just one of these people. This Journal was so fortunate to take huge profit from his role of Editor-in-Chief for many years (from 1998 to 2008). Notably, he was also forerunner in changing the name of the Journal by adding the concept of "laboratory medicine", thus interpreting and supporting the development of our profession and discipline around the globe. He also established a profitable collaboration between CCLM’s Publisher, De Gruyter, and the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine( IFCC). In Memoriam
