Obituary: Gertjan van Ommen (1947-2020)

It is with great sadness that the Commission learnt of the passing of Professor Emeritus Gertjan van Ommen, a leading figure in the 1+ Million Genomes initiative. The European Commission was privileged to have been able to work with him. We will miss him dearly.
