In memoriam Dr. Moritz Kircher (1972-2020)
The IS3R Executive Board was shocked and profoundly saddened to learn that Moritz Kircher, MD, PhD, one of the society’s most promising young members, died on August 15, 2020.
Dr. Kircher joined the IS3R Emerging Leaders Club in 2016. Not long afterwards, he became chief of the Oncoradiology Division of the Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and chair of the Department of Imaging and Radiology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. While specializing clinically in abdominal imaging, he performed groundbreaking translational research in theranostics and the use of nanoparticles to detect cancerous and precancerous tissue with microscopic precision. With his discoveries, he was poised to help transform the treatment of a wide range of microinvasive malignancies.
Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences are with his family, colleagues and friends during this difficult time.
