In memory of Francesca Clerici

23 February, 2015 in subject Okategoriserade

Today is a very sad day at ARC. We have to announce that our colleague and friend Francesca Clerici, an MD and neurologist from Hospital Sacco in Milan, has passed away in a tragic accident in the Alps. Francesca has collaborated with us for many years since spending several months at our center in 2008. Driven by her engagement in clinical work, Francesca also wanted to contribute in the field of research. She quickly developed skills and accumulated experience as a senior scientist. Just recently she joyfully informed us that she had achieved the title of associate professor.
Her enthusiasm for constantly improving her work with patients with cognitive disturbances and their families and her wish to find the best treatment and care for these patients were the driving forces in her professional life. Her colleagues here at ARC remember her not only as a very serious, hardworking and highly committed neurologist, but also as lovely person, harmoniously combining a bright mind with social abilities and empathy with others. She was a wonderful person: we miss her deeply.
