It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we announce the passing away of the Honorary Editor-in-Chief of Postępy Dermatologii i Alergologii/Advances in Dermatology and Allergology, great humanist, outstanding scholar and clinician respected by Polish and foreign dermatologists – professor Jerzy Bowszyc on 10 March 2014.
Professor Bowszyc was born on 25 March 1932 in Vilnius in a family of teachers. He was raised in a religious and patriotic household. In 1945, together with his parents, he repatriated to Poland.
