Dr Bill Langston (1951–2020)

The funeral of Dr Bill Langston is being held on July 24th 2020. Bill Langston has worked at the Marine Biological Association (MBA) since 1977 and became an MBA Associate Fellow in 2000. Bill was highly regarded both by the academic scientific community and by consultants and government agencies who valued his expertise on, amongst other things, the anthropogenic impacts of metals, pollutants and endocrine disruptors on aquatic ecosystems. A review of his work was published recently in the Journal of the Marine Biological Association (JMBA) as part of the 100th volume celebrations.

Bill collaborated widely with partners across the Plymouth institutes but also nationally and internationally. Tributes coming in from far and wide are a testament to how much he will be missed by his colleagues at the MBA and elsewhere.

We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Margaret and three daughters, Jo, Helen and Katy.

A full obituary will be published in the JMBA in due course.
