Reader in pathology at Guy's Hospital in 1970
and Professor and Head of the Department of

number  of other related committees of the
European  Commission. He was a member  of

He  has recently served as a member of the
radical review of the Coroner Services.

For more  than 20 years Sir Colin was the
