Obituary Professor Randall J. Cohrs (Randy)

The European Society for Translational Medicine (EUSTM) is saddened to announce the passing of Professor Randall J. Cohrs. Prof. Cohrs was serving as a Vice President for the EUSTM since 2013. He was one of the founders for the Global Clinical & Translational Sciences Consortium (GCTS). Along with Dr Shahzad, Prof. Cohrs was a key person in building a global consensus definition of Translational Medicine terminology. Dr Cohrs was actively involved in spreading the awareness & knowledge about Translational Medicine and how to bridge the gap between benchside, bedside and public health.

As a tribute to his scientific achievements, and for his valuable contribution for refining Translational Medicine field, EUSTM feel honour to dedicate ‘Translational Medicine: Tools and Techniques’ the first textbook of Translational Medicine’ to Prof. Cohrs. Moreover, in recognition of his significant achievements and valuable contribution in VZV latency translational research, the Academy of Translational Medicine Professionals (ATMP) has announced the award of Fellowship of the Academy (FAcadTM) for Prof. Cohrs. Dr. Randall Cohrs was the first to identify the VZV transcripts associated with latent infection. He characterized the VZV transcripts using arrays of DNA spanning the entire VZV genome. Later he performed ground-breaking experiments to show that specific VZV genes are epigenetically regulated during latency. More recently, he was a key contributor in the identification of a novel VZV latency associated transcript. Randy was unfailingly generous, kind, always had a wonderful story, and never knew a stranger. He will always be remembered as a Translator & Virologist with an insatiable thirst for knowledge and a compassionate human being.
