Jeff Hughes

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our esteemed former colleague Dr. Jeff Hughes.

From his appointment as one of CHSTM’s first permanent members of staff in 1993 to his retirement in 2017, Jeff made huge contributions to the Centre as an inspirational teacher, scholar and colleague. Jeff was known and respected worldwide as a leading figure in the history of science, and we join his many friends in the academy and beyond in expressing our sincere condolences to his family.
