In Remembrance of Donata Oertel

In Remembrance of Donata Oertel

We bemoan the death of Prof. Dr. Donata Oertel who passed away on April 22, 2020 after a prolonged illness. She became a member of the Hearing4all scientific advisory board in 2018 and we owe her gratitude for the support of the cluster. Donata’s excellent contributions to the neurobiology of hearing greatly advance our understanding of neuronal computations in the auditory pathway. We miss her warm-hearted and dedicated commitment to promoting the research in the cluster. Donata has been an outstanding role model for the early stage researches, and especially for women scientists. The memories of her will stay with us.
