A piece of my mind
At the time of going to print, Prof Viness Pillay, from Wits University, had just passed away following a long illness. Our sincerest condolences go to his family, especially his wife and daughter, as well as his friends and colleagues.
The next issue of the SAPJ will carry a full obituary, but it doesn’t seem appropriate not to mention it now. Viness was a true visionary, whose research took him into territories unexplored by most pharmaceutical scientists. On a personal level, I have really appreciated the assistance he gave me on the SAPJ – he was always available to help me when I needed to make difficult decisions about pharmaceutics-related articles.
