Leo Lefrançois

AAI joined his family, friends, and colleagues in mourning the sudden loss of then-AAI Program Chair Leo Lefrançois, Jr., Ph.D. (AAI '94), who died on July 20, 2013, while vacationing in northern Italy. His death came just weeks following the culmination of his efforts as a central figure in organizing the highly successful IMMUNOLOGY 2013™ AAI Annual Meeting and Centennial Celebration held in Honolulu, Hawaii. A tribute authored by then-AAI president Marc Jenkins appeared in the September 2013 issue of the AAI Newsletter.
