Professor Ken Haynes



We are greatly saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague Professor Ken Haynes who was a great fungal biologist with a keen eye for the Grand Vision, a loyal, supportive and hilarious friend to many in the fungal community, an inspiring mentor to innumerable junior scientists, and a loyal supporter of Fulham Football Club.

Ken was diagnosed with leukaemia. He underwent a bone marrow transplant in late 2016, but his immune system never fully recovered and he suffered a series of infections, finally succumbing on 19th March 2018. 

Ken might have left, but he leaves behind a fantastic legacy of great science, fantastic people and a wonderful medical mycology community. He was a great mentor, an incredibly loyal friend, and fantastic colleague.
