In Memoriam: Svein I. Johannessen


Dr. Svein I. Johannessen passed away peacefully in Oslo, Norway, on 26 May 2024. His scientific contribution over more than 50 years of active research covered a wide range of topics related to the clinical pharmacology of ASMs, with special reference to the pharmacokinetics, drug interactions and adverse effects. Dr. Johannessen received the ILAE-IBE Ambassador for Epilepsy Award in 1982 and was the chair of ILAE-Europe (then Commission of European Affairs) between 2001-2005.

He was a "prince of a man," uniquely kind and generous, and will be sorely missed.
