We learned with sadness the news that Professor Jan Clarys passed away on 4th February 2023. 
Jan played an important role in the history of ECMT. 

Jan was the organizer of many cadaver courses at the Laboratory of Experimental Anatomy of the VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) since 1995. Due to his commitment and enthusiasm, these courses were the most popular of all ECMT courses. He was an active member of the ECMT Board of Directors from the early days and always had good ideas about the strategy and functioning of our association. 

We will always remember Jan as an extremely intelligent, very friendly man with a fantastic sense of humor. Due to his illness, we unfortunately had to miss him for some years already. Let him rest in peace now that he is relieved of his pain. 

Our thoughts these days are also with his beloved wife, Else, and the whole family.
