Today it’s a very sad day for the Cure Girls and all people living with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury (SCI), because we have learned that Prof. Geoffrey Raisman passed away on Friday 27 January 2017. Read More
Our thoughts are with his wife and family at this time.
I have met prof. Raisman together with other Cure Girls in January 2015 as reported here.
Prof. Raisman has dedicated his whole research career to find a cure for SCI. He was crazy enough to believe a cure was possible when it really seemed impossible to cure paralysis. Just for that he should be remembered as a hero and deserve our eternal gratitude.
I am sure his name will have a place in history books of medical research.
Prof. Raisman was a world class scientist and we have lost a great inspiration, his tremendous work and the team that he has developed at University College London (UCL) now led by Professor Ying Li and Dr Daqing Li will ensure his legacy remains.
His discoveries will not be lost as his team will continue his brilliant work.
Thank you prof. Raisman, Rest In Peace.
