I dedicate this lecture to our dear friend and colleague, Professor Bongani Mayosi, who passed away earlier this year. Bongani’s death is a devastating loss on various levels. He was a personal friend and we had worked closely together as colleagues. I had the greatest respect for him as a top cardiologist and leading scientist. And he was an important figure in higher education – in our country and further afield.
