RRS Loses a Gentle Giant

It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Professor John B. Little (Jack Little to us all), passed away Sunday. He was a free-thinking scientist whose curiosity extended over many disciplines, an outstanding mentor, and a truly remarkable person.

"He was one of the main reasons I became a radiation biologist and his research always inspired me in my work," said Dr. Marc Mendonca.

To honor his six decades of pioneering contributions in the radiation sciences as well as his outstanding mentorship of more than 250 scientists and clinicians, the Radiation Research Society endorsed a new Legacy Plenary Fund in honor of Dr. Little at the 2019 annual meeting. Presented with this endorsement was a beautiful video biography and interview with Dr. Little.


If you would like to donate to the Legacy Fund that continues Dr. Little's legacy of enriching the scientific experience of radiation researchers by the sponsorship of a plenary lecture held at the Radiation Research Society Annual Meeting, please use our secure link HERE.

Dr. Little’s humanity had a special mark in the lives of so many! Our hearts go out to his wife Françoise, sons John Jr. and Frédéric and their families, and his many beloved friends within the radiation sciences community.
