It is with great sadness that we note the death of TID Executive Committee member Francisco Marty on April 8, 2021 from a fall while photographing a waterfall in the Dominican Republic. Francisco is recognized globally for his expertise in treating transplant and cancer patients. He was a dedicated clinician, patient advocate, and teacher, taking extraordinary joy in mentoring new generations of clinicians. He was an incredibly generous mentor, who continued to help his many trainees and colleagues throughout the world long after their official relationship had ended. In addition to his accomplishments related to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of fungal and viral diseases in immunocompromised hosts, Francisco was a talented photographer, touching the lives of others with stunning images that showcased the same passion he applied to his patients and research (https://500px.com/p/fmarty?view=photos). A dedicated member of the scientific community, he served as a co-editor-in-chief of TID since 2011, guiding the growth of the journal, which has now become the flagship journal for transplant infectious diseases. He was recognized as someone who not only directly contributed to the medical literature through his impactful clinical trials and epidemiologic investigations but also his ability to analyze existing literature and break it down so that it was easily understandable. He gave talks on every corner of the globe and was well recognized as a Transplant ID Twitter influencer. He will be remembered fondly for his wisdom, kindness and enormous generosity. The TID Section extends its deepest condolences to his friends and family, and its gratitude for his commitment to the fields and all members of the TID community. Our field has lost one of the giants who will be missed by the field and all who knew him.
