Dr Paul Trinder RIP

I mourn the passing of this man who developed the Trinder method for salicylates among other things. Professor Rory O’Moore from St James and TCD told me to go see him for advice. He told me to get a good chemical analyst and a mathematician in the Chemical Pathology Department. He was correct. I knew it then and it remains true today but a molcular biologist could be added to the list. The year was 1982.

Paul was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and was a fundamental chemist by nature. He was also a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in London.
