Pierre Band (1935-2020)

Pierre Band, an old friend of Fondo Elena Moroni, passed away in Montreal on 26 of April 2020. In 2007 Pierre hosted the GRELL meeting at which the second edition of the Enrico Anglesio Prize took place.

On that occasion, Pierre and Michèle Band donated to the Prize a wonderful crystal trophy, which can be seen on the Prize Section of this website.

Pierre Band had a long and brilliant career, first in Medical Oncology (he wrote the protocol of the Tamoxifene RTC ), then in Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology (he was the Director of the British Columbia Cancer Agency). He crowned his long experience with the book “Therapeutic Revolution. The History of Medical Oncology from Early Days to the Creation of the Subspecialty” *.

Between 2008 and 2010 Roberto Zanetti and Fondo Elena Moroni (then Fondo Anglesio Moroni) organized for Pierre three conferences in Italy presenting his work in progress in Turin, Parma and Florence. Pierre Band’s Turin conference in 2008 coincided with the ceremony for the centennial anniversary of the birth of Enrico Anglesio.
