  • Obituary for Herbert Hoenigsmann

    Obituary for Herbert Hoenigsmann

    The International Union of Photobiology mourns the death of Herbert Hoenigsmann, its long term executive board member (Treasurer 1996-2000, President 2000-2004, Secretary 2008, and Secretary-Treasurer 2009-2014), who passed away unexpectedly on the morning of August 21, 2023, at the age of 80.

    In 1996, he organised and hosted the memorable 12th International Congress on Photobiology in Vienna and in 2014 he received the Finsen Medal for Fundamental Contributions to Photomedicine. He had a decisive influence on the field and shaped our Society.

    We will miss him and share the sorrow with his family, friends and colleagues.
