THE PASSING OF PROFESSOR ZAKARIAH EL BAZ.

VERY SAD NEWS OF THE LOSS OF PROFESSOR ZAKARIAH EL BAZ.

PROFESSOR EL BAZ WAS A PIONEER OF NEPHROLOGY IN EGYPT AND THE ARAB WORLD.

PROFESSOR EL BAZ WAS ONE OF THE FATHERS OF EGYPTIAN NEPHROLOGY AND A LEADER IN THE FIELD.

HE MADE MAJOR CLINICAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIALYSIS AND TRANSPLANTATION IN EGYPT IN THE 60s and 70S.

HE WAS ALSO VERY INTERESTED IN NUTRITION AND CKD.

PROFESSOR EL BAZ WAS ALWAYS THE CKD PATIENTS ADVOCATE AND FOUNDER OF THE EGYPTIAN KIDNEY PATIENTS ASSOCIATION.

PROFESSOR EL BAZ WAS A GREAT TEACHER AND ALWAYS ATTENDED NEPHROLOGY CONFERNECES WERE HE SAT IN THE FRONT ROW TO LEARN MORE AND SHARE HIS EXPERIENCE. I ALWAYS ASKED HIM A QUESTION AND LEARNED FROM HIS CONTRIBUTIONS.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, PROFESSOR EL BAZ WAS A GREAT MAN AND HUMANIST.

HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL OF US WHO KNEW HIM AND LOVED HIM.
