Jouni Uitto: Passing of a pioneer of EB research (1943 - 2022)

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jouni Uitto, one of the pioneers of EB research.

He was a long-standing member of DEBRA's Medical and Scientific Advisory Panel (MSAP). His contribution to DEBRA and the entire EB community, especially to EB patients, was immense over many years. We will remember his winning smile and sense of humor, as well as his outstanding commitment to EB research, to which he gave much weight during his career. We will miss him very much. Our thoughts are with his family.

Jouni was Professor and Chair of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia
