Prof Tony Gershlick: Rest In Peace

Previous | Next

Summary

Dear Colleague,

We are very sad to inform you that Professor Tony Gershlick died last night as a result of COVID infection. Tony was a leading light of interventional cardiology for more than 35 years and a tireless advocate of the importance of trials to guide clinical practice. He was directly involved in every major advance in coronary intervention and his influence as a key opinion leader extended around the world. He remained extremely active in clinical and academic practice and was due next week to be Chairing an International Symposium on the Impact of the COVID pandemic on acute coronary syndromes.

We extend our sincere condolences to Tony’s family and colleagues.

Yours sincerely
