EFP pays tribute to a great scientist Robert Genco
The periodontal world has grieved for the loss of too many periodontal giants in recent years, but there are few whose influence and humanity exceed that of Dr Robert (Bob) Genco, who we were stunned to hear, passed away on 6th March 2019 at the age of 80 years. The reason for our shock was because Bob seemed immortal to us all, a comforting and welcome presence in our lives. He had an internal energy and vitality that belied his years, and it is sadly fitting that Bob passed away early in the morning, at work, and amongst his colleagues and students.
