Fabio Quondamatteo Anatomical Society for EFEM secretary story

A huge congratulations go to Professor Fabio Quondamatteo on his election to the board of the European Federation of Experimental Morphology (EFEM) as secretary.

Founded in 1989 in Nancy, France, EFEM promotes the exchange and dissemination of information between the European Anatomical Societies and brings together legally-constituted scientific societies and groups in Europe concerned with the morphological sciences.

Each Anatomical Society belonging to EFEM elects a delegate to the council, which commits its executive powers to a seven-member board chaired by the president.

Professor Quondamatteo has served as the Anatomical Society's delegate and now succeeds Professor Erdogan Sendemir as secretary after his election as an officer on the executive board.

Professor Quondamatteo said: "I am delighted to have been elected to the board of the EFEM as Secretary. It is an honour to succeed Professor Erdogan Sendemir in this role and I thank him for the work he has done."

Professor Sendemir paid tribute to the appointment of his colleague, adding: "The European Federation of Experimental Morphology has a very strong secretary today. Congratulations, Fabio!"
