With incredible sadness I received the terrible news that my colleagues and friends, Bernd Fischer and Katrin Eichelbaum, passed away. Bernd, Katrin and I formed a highly interdisciplinary team working from 2009 to 2014 at EMBL in Heidelberg. Bernd and I continued our close collaboration as independent group leaders. Together with other colleagues at EMBL, we achieved a long-standing challenge: the determination of the “near complete” atlas of human RNA-binding proteins. Katrin and Bernd were outstanding scientists and great friends.
I can only be grateful for having the opportunity to work with you. You are terribly missed.
