We are very sad to announce the unfoprtunate passing of Dr George Miiro, the coordinator of the Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI), the East African Consortium for clinical Research (EACCR), and keen supporter of Global Health Trials. Dr Miiro was a medic and epidemiologist with a keen interest in capacity building for health research, and public engagement practices for clinical research. He authored many important papers in the field and was key in developing EACCR, EDCTP's network of excellence in Eastern Africa. Dr Miiro was a warm, enthusiastic and lively personality. He will be sorely missed. Please join us in sending our thoughts and prayers to Dr Miiro's family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.
