It is with the greatest of sadness that we announce the passing of two esteemed colleagues, William Alexander Craig and Ethan Rubinstein.  Our deepest condolences to all family, friends and colleagues.
William Alexander Craig
Bill Craig, a member of the journal’s International Advisory Board, died from complications of lymphoma on March 11, 2015 aged 75.  William Alexander Craig was born in 1939.  His first university degree was in mathematics which served him well when he later developed expertise, and international recognition, in PK/PD studies. He graduated in medicine at Tufts Medical School in Boston and then moved to the University of Wisconsin in Madison where he completed his internships following which he was drafted into the US Army as a medical officer leaving as a Major.  Following military service he returned to Madison to appointments at the VA Hospital, where he became chief of infectious diseases, and also at the University of Wisconsin. Bill had many interests in infectious diseases but his primary research programme was in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.  His research output was immense and there were few international congresses where he was not an active participant. He was active in the organization of ICAAC, serving as chairman of the programme committee.  We last met him at the 2014 ICAAC meeting in Washington DC.
Ethan Rubinstein
The world-renowned Israeli-Canadian doctor and academic Dr Ethan Rubinstein, died recently on 29th January 2015. Ethan was born in British Palestine in 1941 and received his medical degree from the University of Basel in Switzerland in 1968.  He later received a law degree from Tel Aviv University in 1985 after which he moved to Canada, settling in Winnipeg where he was head of infectious diseases at the Health Sciences Centre and a respected faculty member at the University of Manitoba. Ethan’s great research focuses included; influenza, vaccination, MRSA, anthrax, and chronic pulmonary disease; he is particularly noted for his study of the H1N1 and other influenza vaccines. Ethan famously attended the trial of Adolf Eichmann in 1961 and later served in the medical corps of the Israeli army. One of the men involved in capturing Eichmann in Argentina asked Ethan to participate in a similar effort to locate Josef Mengele in the 1970s; however, the effort was aborted because it was suspected to be a trap.

Antimicrobials of the Future

Through the Working Group, the ISC is involved and engaged with stakeholder groups in the field of antibacterial stewardship for old and future new antibiotics through the IMI (Innovative Medicine Initiative) project DRIVE-AB in the ND4BB program.  IMI is a public-private partnership between the EU and EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations). DRIVE-AB is developing new economic models to incentivise antibiotic discovery and development activities while safeguarding the efficacy of antibiotics by researching and advocating their appropriate use.  For further information on IMI project DRIVE-AB please contact Ursula Theuretzbacher Этот адрес e-mail защищен от спам-ботов.

New members to the WG are welcome and may apply via any of the officers. Further details may be found on the WG’s temporary website HERE
