It is with great sadness that the SRF shares the passing of Dr. Andrew “Andy” M. Tager. Vibrant, kind, and generous, Andy sought to improve the quality of life for countless patients not only with his indomitable spirit, but through his passionate commitment to his scientific work as a physician and researcher. The SRF is proud to have sponsored work in the Tager lab over many years and partly with that support, Andy has been a major contributor to our understanding of fibroblast/myofibroblast behavior and fibrosis. Furthermore, he was highly regarded and recognized for his efforts that brought a greater understanding to pulmonary fibrosis and to potential treatments to those who suffer from diseases like scleroderma. He truly embodied the SRF belief that collaboration is essential, never missing an opportunity to seek and share knowledge. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Cynthia, his son Sam, and his extended family. His legacy will live on through all those he inspired. We will miss Andy deeply, but we are forever grateful for the opportunity to have worked with him and experience his endless enthusiasm, optimism, and joy.
