Joerg Hasford We are saddened to share the news of the death of Professor Jörg Hasford last month. Jörg Hasford was a German physician, biometrician, and epidemiologist. For 33 years he was the biometrician of the German CML Study Group and as such a member of the European Investigators on CML. His scientific merits comprise the 5 randomized CML studies of the German CML group 1984 - 2017 and, in cooperation with the European CML investigators, meta-analyses of clinical trials, the EUTOS CML registry and 2 prognostic scores, the EUTOS score and the Euro score carrying his name. Towards the end of his career he got involved in medical ethics. Due to his scientific thoroughness and carefulness he became an expert advisor on clinical trials to the European Commission and was elected President of national European Ethics Committees in Brussels.

We share below the funeral oration from Professor Rüdiger Hehlmann, his close professional colleague.
