Remembering GBR Advisory Board member Professor Sir Christopher Dobson - 1949-2019

Global Biotech Revolution would like to pay tribute to Professor Sir Christopher Dobson, Master of St John’s College at the University of Cambridge, who died on 8th September 2019.


Sir Christopher was an incredibly kind supporter of GBR and the GapSummits since our inception and was a founding member of our GBR advisory board. He was instrumental in supporting the hosting of the UK GapSummits at the Old Divinity School, St John’s College, and was incredibly generous in sharing his advice and ideas each year for how we could continue to develop GBR and the GapSummits, including the upcoming GapSummit 2020. The GBR and GapSummit teams would like to acknowledge Sir Christopher’s contribution to helping us grow, and express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for his wisdom, generosity and kindness. He will be sadly missed.
