Mrs. Lina Popper, a long revered member of the international liver community and wife of eminent physician Dr. Hans Popper, passed away on 15 August 2017, aged 100. Dr. Hans Popper, a founding member of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), is credited with originating modern liver research. Mrs. Popper attended a number of EASL conferences as well as other international liver meetings with Dr. Popper, and continued to travel to medical meetings all over the world and was a constant and respected presence in the research community long after Dr. Popper's passing in 1988.
EASL mourns the loss of Mrs. Lina Popper and extends gratitude for her valued and lasting support to the liver community.
