Farewell Dr Lee

Dr. Lee Whitmore, the developer of the PCDDB and the DichroWeb server, who has worked with the Wallace/Janes groups on tools for CD spectroscopy for the past 15 years, has left Birkbeck and the project on 31 May 2018. He has not only provided advice and information to users online but has also been a major participant/lecturer in CD meetings and workshops in the UK and around the world, and at the SRCD meetings in Beijing (2009) and Germany (2015), where many users will have met him. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
