Ondrej Hes


It is with greatest sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing of our dear friend and colleague, Dr. Ondrej Hes. Ondrej, fondly known as Ondra. He suffered a stroke on his morning run (his usual “commute”) to work in Plzen, Czech Republic, and passed away on July 2, 2022.

The genitourinary pathology community around the world mourns the loss of our great friend and colleague, a giant and scholar in the field of genitourinary pathology, a mentor, a teacher, and a colleague to many, and a true gentleman.

We dedicate the Banff Course 2022 to the memory of Dr. Hes. The course program remains unchanged. We thank the faculty that has kindly agreed to cover the lectures that were originally planned for Dr. Hes.
