    Dear ONE Community,

    It is with a very heavy heart that I share that our dear colleague Professor Ivan Montiel has passed away. His family shared this very sad news on March 5.

    Many of you would be aware that Ivan had been unwell. He had been visiting his family in Spain and had gone missing on February 20. Despite our fears about Ivan's safety, we have all been hoping, praying, wishing for a miracle.…this unfortunate news, with its grim finality, is shocking. 

    Ivan was an amazing colleague, an excellent academic and an incredible ONE executive member. He was always helpful, always supportive and always an epitome of grace and gentleness.

    We will honour Ivan's memory and legacy through ONE. For now, let us support Ivan's family and each other in this very unfortunate loss.

    Take care of yourself, and of each other.

    Warm regards,
