The Cyprus Institute Expresses Condolences for Death of Fotis Kafatos

The Cyprus Institute express the warmest condolences to the family of Professor Fotis C. Kafatos, a world-class biologist and academic who has recently passed away.

Fotis C. Kafatos studied at the Universities of Cornel and Harvard.  In 1969 became Professor at Harvard University. He also served as Professor at the Universities of Athens, Crete and Imperial College London. He was the founder and first President of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Foundation of Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH), the Director General of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and the founding President of the European Research Council (ERC).

He received the most important prizes and distinctions for his scientific achievements and was elected fellow of the USA National Academy of Sciences, the French Academy of Sciences, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society.

Kafatos served as the first (and only) Chair of the short lived (2010-2014) Scientific Council of Cyprus, and in this capacity, he promoted scientific development in Cyprus. He was a big supporter of the Cyprus Institute, initially in the planning of the CyI (2000-2004) and more recently in the scoping of a Research Center for Biological Sciences under the CyI.
