In Memoriam Frans de Waal

It is with great sadness that Maastricht University has learned of the death of Frans de Waal. Frans de Waal was a world-renowned researcher in the behaviour of chimpanzees and other primates. He had a great influence both in the scientific field and in sharing knowledge about primate behaviour with a wider audience through his beautifully written books and lectures. Frans de Waal was the first holder of the Eugène Dubois Chair at Maastricht University in 2015.
