The preparations for the EPC 2018 already started, and local and international organizing, together with scientific committee will do their best to ensure the diverse and balanced scientific programme that will cover most relevant and up to date scientific topics related to all of the WPSA’s working groups.

In memory of Professor Sally Solomon

1944 - 2015

Sally SolomonIt is with great sadness that I find myself having to write about the death of my dear friend and mentor Professor Sally Solomon who passed away on the 25th February 2015 after a short period of illness.
Sally Solomon was born on 19th April 1944 in Glasgow. She worked in academia for over 40 years and she published widely in the general field of Egg formation and Egg quality. Her passing deprives the scientific community and the poultry industry of one of its most outstanding individuals. She was a scientist respected and loved by all who knew her.
