It is with deep sadness that we learnt of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Professor Bongani Mayosi on Friday 27th July.
Bongani was Dean of Health Sciences at the University of Cape Town, co-chair of our Cardiology, Diabetes and Nephrology at the Limits meeting, and a globally respected cardiologist. The full announcement by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town can be read HERE.

The Royal College of Physicians, London, UK
The Scientific Committee has announced that the 20th annual ‘Cardiology, Diabetes & Nephrology at the Limits’ meeting will be held in London in 2018 at the Royal College of Physicians.
This annual meeting continues to set new standards in medical education for these closely linked disease areas and a world class faculty is being assembled to present and discuss leading edge developments in their specialities. The meeting is again supported and endorsed by ‘the Lancet’ medical journal and its editor in chief, Dr. Richard Horton. The event is also supported by Brigham & Women’s Hospital and their leading clinicians; Dr Peter Libby & Dr Marc Pfeffer.
As with all ‘At the Limits’ meetings, attendance will be strictly limited to maintain the intimate atmosphere and to engender the fierce discussion and debate which has become the hallmark of these events. Professor Yellon commented “for many years we ran these events separately, but the cross-over is now more distinct than ever and it has become advantageous to combine the educational aspects of the meetings. I’m also very excited that the speakers who address the meetings allow us to feature their presentations on the ‘At the Limits’ website, along with the website of our partner in the series, The Lancet”.
