In Memoriam: Professor Jagjit S. Chopra

The following was distributed by the Indian Academy of Neurology.

It is with deep sorrow and regret that we inform you about the demise of Professor Jagjit S. Chopra, the founder President of the Indian Academy of Neurology on Jan. 19, 2019. He was the driving force in the formation of the IAN and the person who guided it to maturity.

He had a profound influence on the development of the academy as well as the professional careers of many members of the IAN.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the family members, friends, and students of Prof. Chopra.

— Satish Khadilkar, President, IAN, and Gagandeep Singh, Secretary, IAN
