Book of Remembrance of

Mark Kirkland V2

Mark Kirkland

We will always remember Mark as a brilliant scientist and an invaluable team member. Over his 32 years at Colworth he developed a world class expertise in cryo-microscopy and microstructural analysis. His contribution has been central to countless projects over this time and he has had a huge impact on the wider Ice Cream R&D programme. Many of us have worked closely with Mark over a number of years and we will miss him enormously, but our thoughts and prayers are especially with Bev, his wife, at this time.

Please feel free to add your own messages and memories of Mark.
