Tribute to Professor Maria Bitner-Glindzicz

Professor Mark Caulfield, Chief Scientist at Genomics England said:

"We are desperately saddened to learn of the tragic death of Professor Maria Bitner-Glindzicz. Maria was an outstanding clinical geneticist and champion of people with syndromic hearing loss.

In the 100,000 Genomes Project she was one of the earliest colleagues to be involved with the programme and a wonderful contributor. Her kindness, indefatigable enthusiasm and wisdom was unwavering and she will be greatly missed by her patients, family and all of us.

Our deepest condolences and our hearts go out to her family, her colleagues and patients."
