Dear IFPCS members,

it is with great sadness that I wish to share the following information, kindly transmitted by Prof. Kazumasa Wakamatsu, President of the Japanese Society for Pigment Cell Research (JSPCR):

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of JSPCR members, I am very sad to inform you that Professor Emeritus Yutaka Mishima of Kobe University passed away yesterday. He was 87 years old. He successively held the first president of IFPCS (1990-1993) and also the first president of JSPCR. He made a significant contribution to the society. I would like to say my sincere condolence for his death. It is very sad, but he lived a full and vibrant life indeed.
Best wishes,
Kazumasa Wakamatsu
President of JSPCR

Prof. Yutaka Mishima hosted the International Pigment Cell Conference (IPCC) in Kobe (Japan) in 1990 and was also Honorary Member of the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR)

May he rest in peace.
