I am very grateful to my teachers in Oncology, Professor Gordon Hamilton Fairley, UK and Professor L. A. Leone, USA.

Professor Gordon Hamilton Fairley kindly arranged for me to be a member in the RSM 42 years ago.

My father is a proud member of the RSM for over 40 years and he is extremely grateful to Professor Gordon Hamilton Fairley who introduced him to the Royal Society. He lived and worked in London during the 1970s where he also married my mother Eufrosini in London and raised me and my sister Danaie. We are all very proud of his achievements and the fact that his name will be inscribed in the Wall of Honour situated in the Guy – Whittle Atrium at The Royal Society of Medicine.
