Dr Lute Bos, world-renowned virologist, passed away on 6 July. Dr Bos’ career spanned 50 years. He worked mainly on virus diseases of legume and vegetable crops, wrote or co-authored more than 200 papers, helped create a number of international research partnerships – and was the driving force behind the establishment of ICARDA’s virology unit in the mid 1980s. Dr Bos’ scientific acumen, his dedication and his commitment to community, were legendary. He never stopped working until the very end. In fact, he died of complications following a heart attack he suffered while giving a presentation at a virology conference in Norway. He will be sadly missed.
