Tribute to Mary Jeanne Kreek
It is with great emotion and deep sadness that we learned of the passing of Dr. Mary Jeanne Kreek on Saturday, March 27, 2021 in New York.
Many well-deserved and heartfelt tributes have already been received from the international scientific community, to which we would like to add those of the ATHS community of which Mary Jeanne formed part on so many occasions in Biarritz.
