It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of our colleague and friend, Peter Wellstead, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in Manchester last Friday, 24th June 2016. Peter had a profound influence on the field of control engineering over many years. More recently, he made significant contributions to the emerging area of systems biology, establishing a team at the Hamilton Institute in 2003. His primary research focus in latter years was on the development of a systems understanding of Parkinson’s Disease with a view to helping others. This was entirely consistent with Peter’s general disposition; he was a generous, kind and supportive mentor, colleague and friend. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
