It is with deep sadness that INCT-FNA communicates the death, on the 16 day of May of 2019, of one of our most illustrious and beloved companions, Prof. Mahir Saleh Hussein.

We would like to share with everyone the full of the Death Note sent to SBF for publication, written by: Profa. Alinka Lépine-Szily, member of the managing committee of INCT-FNA, Prof. Antonio Fernando Ribeiro de Toledo Piza, senior lecturer at USP, Prof. Carlos Bertulani from Univ. Texas A & M Commerce and member of INCT-FNA International Scientific Council, Prof. Raul Donangelo from UFRJ and the University of the Republic, and Prof. Luiz Felipe Canto, professor emeritus at UFRJ, both members of INCT-FNA. This note briefly describes the brilliant trajectory of our dear colleague.

For our part, there is gratitude for everything that Prof. Hussein did for Brazilian science and the longing for a dear friend. On behalf of the entire INCT-FNA community, we would also like to express our feelings and condolences to all family and friends for the terrible loss.
