iDiv is mourning the loss of a former member
Former research director of the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biotechnology (IPB) in Halle passed away
With great sadness, we received the news that an iDiv member of the first hour, Dierk Scheel, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on 18 May 2022. In his capacity as Department head “Stress and Developmental Biology” and research director of the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biotechnology (IPB) in Halle, Dierk has been a full iDiv member from 2012 until his retirement in 2018. We're mourning the loss of a visionary leader in plant metabolomics, but mostly a smart and friendly collaborator on iDiv Flexpool projects and in the International research school “TreeDi”. We wish Dierk’s family, friends and long-time colleagues at IPB all the strength to cope with this tragic loss.
The funeral service for Dierk Scheel will be held on Friday, June 17, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at the Gertrauden Cemetery in Halle (Landrain 25, 06118 Halle). Condolences to his family may be sent directly to his daughter (Hanna Hübler, Steinweg 13, 99090 Erfurt-Alach).
