David Mason, RIP.
I am sorry to report that Professor David Mason of Oxford University has died following complications of routine surgery. David who was in his early sixties was the fifth most cited author in Oncology. He was responsible for many innovations in the immunological definition of lymphoid tumors and involved in formulating both the REAL and WHO classifications. I served with him on an LRF committee.
