Dear colleagues, friends, and members of SIOP,

We recently learned with great sadness of the passing of Dr. Hervé Rubie.

A paediatric oncologist at heart and SIOP member, he was also one of the founding members of La société française de lutte contre les Cancers et les leucémies de l’Enfant et de l’adolescent (SFCE).

He was the head of the paediatric onco-haematology department of the Toulouse University Hospital until his retirement and was particularly involved in the SFCE neuroblastoma committee of which he was one of the pioneer members.

Dr. Rubie was a great communicator and networker, always accompanied by a laugh and his characteristic mustache. His absence will be a great loss for all of us.

We extend our most sincere condolences to his family, loved ones and the Toulouse team.

SIOP Office on behalf of the SIOP leadership and community
