Dr Angelo Di Leo

It is with deep sorrow that we have to announce that Angelo Di Leo passed away.
Angelo was a great scientist and a true supporter and leader of IBCSG, acting for many years as Co-Chair of the Scientific Committee, Chair of the Biological Protocol Working Group, and member of the Foundation Council. He was crucial in the development and realization of many IBCSG trials such as PYTHIA, TOUCH and POLAR, and recipient of many distinctions such as the ESMO Lifetime Achievement Award 2019. But mainly, he was a wonderful, kind person with a beautiful sense of humor he maintained, despite his difficult disease. His courage was admirable - he knew very well the future but he never revealed any fear. His wife, his daughter, his family, and colleagues from Prato who worked so closely with him are in our thoughts.
He will be deeply missed.
