Georg Peters - in memorium

Georg Peters remembered

On 8th August 2018, Georg Peters suffered a fatal accident during a hike in the Austrian mountains.

As a result of this heart-breaking event, the international science community has lost one of its most outstanding members, a sharp mind and a wonderful human being.

Georg was an active member of ISAC's Working Group on MRSA and co-authored several ISAC consensus papers on the topic.

Georg was most recently Professor and Chair of Clinical Microbiology at the WWU Munster and was also a member of the University Senate. At the age of 67, he had planned to retire from his academic positions in September 2018.  

At this time of intense sorrow, our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
