Tribute to our colleague Professor Maria Bitner-Glindzicz
We are deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic death of Professor Maria Bitner-Glindzicz in a cycling accident. She was a much loved and hugely respected member of our UCL community. Professor Bitner was an outstanding clinical geneticist who dedicated her career to helping others and was carrying out important research into the genetic causes of deafness in children and adults. Her death is an enormous loss. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues. We kindly request their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.
