In Memoriam: Markus Schmutz

16 December, 2021

Markus Schmutz, a neuropharmacologist and long-time board member of the Swiss Epilepsy League and most recently of the partner and patient organization Epi-Suisse, passed away on 5 December 2021, after a long and patiently endured illness in Basel, his birthplace and place of work for decades.

Markus Schmutz left a lasting mark - through his research, his commitment, and also as a person. We miss him, but are grateful to have known him. Our thoughts are with his family, to whom we wish much strength.
