ASBMR Mourns the Loss of a Colleague
Date: May 13, 2010
We mourn the loss of longtime ASBMR member and JBMR Editorial Board Member Dr. Helmtrud “Trudy” Roach, who passed away on April 28, 2010. Dr. Roach worked at the University of South Hampton, United Kingdom, for over 20 years in the area of cartilage biology holding the position of Reader in the Bone and Joint Research Group. Her passion was trying to understand the disease process in osteoarthritis, as well as all aspects of bone and cartilage development and basic cell biology of skeletal cells. Dr. Roach gave generously of her time, always available to chat about science and provide support and to troubleshoot a new technique or offer new suggestions to students and colleagues. She will be greatly missed by her many friends and colleagues throughout the world. She is survived by her husband Cecil, her children, Tania and Yvonne and her grandchildren Nina and Maya.
