Attendee at IFDAT conferences, from our first conference in Barcelona in 2010 to the present day, will hold fond memories of Dr Anthony Wong. Tony passed away from cardiac arrest on Friday 15 January 2021.
Tony was a Medical Review Officer and Toxicologist of international renown and ran his laboratory, Maxilab Diagnoticos Ltda., as well as holding directorships with Instituto da Crianca Hospital das Clinicas and the Brazilian Institute of Toxicological and Pharmacological Studies.
Tony was also a founding and, until his untimely death, a current board member of IFDAT representing the South American Countries. As such he could be relied on to assist and contribute greatly to both the promotion and expansion of the IFDAT community and the organisation and flow of the annual conferences. His enthusiasm, panache and great depth of knowledge will be sorely missed.
