The Department is very sad to report the death of Dr Derek Bendall on 4th December, aged 84.


He had been a member of the Department for decades, remaining active throughout his retirement. During his long career, he made major contributions in bioenergetics, and especially in photosynthesis and photosynthetic electron transfer. He was an integral part of the long tradition of photosynthesis research in the Department, made famous in that regard by Robin Hill.
