PROFESSOR ROZ ANDERSON
PROFESSOR OF PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY, UNIVERSITY OF SUNDERLAND
Professor Roz Anderson’s 31 year scientific career has focused on finding treatments for a wide variety of difficult diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, diagnosis of bacterial infections, psoriasis and cancer. However, at Cystinosis Ireland, we know Roz both as a friend and immense scientific intellect that worked tirelessly to find a cure for the rare genetic disorder cystinosis.
Roz was a longstanding contributor our annual Dublin Cystinosis Workshop and always had a valuable contribution to make.
Despite facing the challenges of her own illness, Roz made the enormous effort to come to our last workshop in April 2018. Never cowed by her own illness, Roz remained at all times focused on improving the lives of others through her cystinosis research for which we are eternally grateful.
We are inspired by Roz’s courage and so glad to have known her both as a scientist and a friend.
She is greatly missed by all who knew her and particularly by her friends in Cystinosis Ireland.
Our deepest sympathies go out to her family.
