In memory of Ken Fearon
In September 2016, a longstanding member of the PRC collaborative, Kenneth Fearon, passed away.
Professor Fearon was one of the leading professionals within both oncology surgery and research in his time, and his efforts in the development of ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) remains one of his greatest achievements.
For PRC, Professor Fearon was one of the true pioneers of cancer cachexia research. He lead the work which resulted in a classification of cancer cachexia, and was together with Stein Kaasa PI for the PRC Menac trial.
Ken will remain in our memories.
