dedicated to the memory of


Dr. Avi Grinstein

Dear friends

It is with great sorrow and regret that we must inform you of bad news about our friend Avi Grinstein.

Avi collapsed suddenly on October 18th, and one day later, he passsed away in the hospital intnesive care unit. We are all terribly shocked. It is a great loss to all of us: to his family, to his many friends who loved him (who does not love Avi?) and to the scientific community to which Avi contributed so much.

The memory of Avi will last forever in out hearts
