We are sad to inform members of the death of former SCI President Dr Ian Graham-Bryce. Ian had established himself as a research scientist, as a leader in industry, and as an academic before being made Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Dundee University. The main focus of his research was the safe development of effective pesticides for worldwide use. He worked as Director of the East Malling Research Station in Kent before becoming Head of the Environmental Affairs Division at Shell and, in both roles, continued his concerns for the environment in the context of international commerce.
Dr Graham-Bryce was also a Governor of Imperial College in London, President of the Association of Applied Biologists, Chair of the Scottish University Principals, Chair of the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, and Chair of the Polar Science and Technology Board.
Ian Graham-Bryce was a distinguished and well-liked member of the scientific and industrial communities who will be much missed. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
