IN MEMORIAM of Ulrich Petry

Dear Colposcopists and EFC members,

Our former President, Professor Ulrich Petry has passed away few days ago after a rapid and serious illness.

Ulrich was a dear friend to many, a true gentleman and a brilliant scientist. Ulrich was a keystone for our society EFC and an inspiration for a generation of colposcopists, not just in his own Clinic in Wolfsburg or in Germany, but in the whole Europe.

He made a huge contribution to colposcopy, science and above all to our European good relations and friendships.

We will miss Ulli and we remember him in silent mourning.
