In Memoriam: Professor dr. Huib Ovaa

22 May 2020

Professor dr. Huib Ovaa, ELF Academic Chemistry Partner and Public Programme Owner passed away on the 19th of May 2020.

Huib has contributed to the design and synthesis of the Public Compound Collection. In 2014 he was the first Public Programme Owner to receive a Qualified Hit list from the European Lead Factory initiative. Several innovative research collaborations with ELF teams followed directly after.

We can only echo the words of his close colleagues from Leiden University that the drug discovery community lost a brilliant and passionate scientist. 

Our thoughts go out to all his loved ones.
