Apart from getting the chance to give my first ever conference talk, which was, of course, a learning experience in itself and an important goal in my journey towards a PhD, I learnt a lot about the avian brain and also quite a bit about avian genetics (and genomics). As someone who has only recently started looking a bit closer into gene expression in the brain of chickens in correlation with physiological changes in food-restricted conditions, this has given me a lot of new ideas about how I want to go about my research project, both in terms of some new measurements to include but perhaps mostly in terms of how to interpret and handle my results.

Tragically, just after accepting the invitation, he died in a riding accident on 13 March 2015 at the age of 76. Three of his closest colleagues – Nancy Curtin, Chris Barclay and Di Newham – spoke in his stead to give us an insight into the diverse career and personal qualities of this extraordinary scientist.
