CTI Special Feature on Inflammatory Diseases: A Translational Perspective
Special Feature Coordinator: Dr Connie Wong, Centre for Inflammatory Diseases, Department of Medicine, School of Clinical Sciences, Monash Medical Centre, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria 3168, Australia.

I am sad to report that Professor Geoff Shellam passed away last week. Geoff was a pioneer and world leader in immunogenetics, particularly the interaction between mouse cytomegalovirus and the immune system as an illuminating example of persistent herpesvirus infections.
Geoff contributed greatly to our society. He was ASI President in 1992-1993, and recognized with Honorary Life Membership in 2012.
