David J. Patterson Leaves WDS Scientific Committee

David J. Patterson Leaves WDS Scientific Committee

We are very sorry to inform the WDS Community that David J. Patterson (Paddy) has been forced to retire from the WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC) 2018–2021 with immediate effect due to health reasons. Paddy's leaving is a big loss to WDS: he has been playing a key role in the SC by not only bringing his wealth of knowledge and expertise in the area of Biological data, but also his drive and enthusiasm for ensuring that 'data at risk' are identified and move along the maturity pathway towards Trustworthy Data Repositories.

The WDS-SC, and the WDS International Programme and Technology Offices, take this opportunity to thank Paddy for the amazing energies he has put into WDS over the past year, and we wish him all the best for the future.
