The Division of Oncology mourns the loss of Associate Professor Dr. Michael Hejna.

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Associate Professor Dr. Michael Hejna, who left us forever on 04.12.2021 at the age of 61.  For many years, Michael Hejna worked as a senior doctor and programme director for gastroesophageal malignancies at Clinic I of the Division of Oncology, producing an abundant academic oeuvre over the course of his career.

Much more than that, however, for many of us he was a long-standing companion and friend; an unconventional spirit whose humour and warmth will stay with us forever.

We would particularly like to offer our condolences to his family at this difficult time!
