Remembering Professor Connie Eaves: an exceptional researcher, mentor and friend.

On March 7, 2024, the Experimental Hematology community lost a legend. Editor of our journal (2017- June 2023), and a member of the International Society for Experimental Hematology (ISEH) for over 50 years, Professor Connie Eaves was thoroughly devoted to ISEH and its community of researchers. She contributed significantly to the ISEH leadership, notably as President (2002-2003) and was the highly deserving recipient of both the Donald Metcalf Award (2008) and the Outstanding Mentor award (2023). Upon accepting her Mentorship award, Connie declared how proud she was of ISEH - that it was a wonderful scientific meeting and community - and her passion for the society shone through. She worked tirelessly, both for scientific advances and to create opportunities for young scientists. She touched the lives of countless researchers along the way and she will be dearly missed.
