It is with great sorrow that we relay this notice of Dr. Robert (Bob) Salter’s passing. He was a longstanding supporter and advocate of Friends of CIHR. He had a brilliant career as an orthopaedic specialist, scientist and humanitarian. He was a model of integrity, social conscience and charitable work. As a founding member of Friends and Alumni of MRC, the predecessor organization of Friends of CIHR, he was a staunch promoter of these organizations despite his failing health. He stands as a model to emulate.

His obituary appeared in today’s Globe & Mail at the link below:
