John Fitzpatrick RIP
May 16, 2014
The sudden passing of Professor John Fitzpatrick is a source of deep sadness to all at the International Prevention Research Institute iPRI. Professor Fitzpatrick was a Senior Research Fellow at iPRI as well as being a good friend and colleague for many years. John had a distinguished career as a surgeon and researcher and was a giant figure in Urology. John was Head of Research at the Irish Cancer Society having been previously Professor of Surgery and Consultant Urologist at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and University College Dublin. His eminent role was recognised nationally and internationally and he had a profound influence on a whole generation of urologists. Professor Fitzpatrick will be greatly missed by his many friends and colleagues and we extend our deepest sympathies to his family. May John rest in peace.
