The untimely death of Rick Speare
Rick Speare was tragically killed in a car accident on the 5th June 2016. He worked tirelessly to improve human and animal health in the tropics, particularly in developing countries. His influence spread world wide through the thousands of masters and doctoral students he taught and supervised. He is sadly missed by family, friends and colleagues. His passionate involvement in research capacity building in the Solomon Islands may be supported by a contribution to the Rick Speare Memorial Fund.
