It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that our friend and collaborator, John W Walsh has passed away. John was a tireless advocate for better patient care and research in Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, COPD and bronchiectasis and played a key role in establishing the European Bronchiectasis Registry. We owe John a tremendous debt and he will be greatly missed.
