Dear colleagues and friends,
It is with deep sadness and sorrow that I inform you that Professor Christian Guilleminault passed away a few days ago at the age of 80.
Professor Christian Guilleminault was a pioneer in the field of sleep medicine. As a productive researcher, he has made so many groundbreaking discoveries in the fields of sleep-disordered breathing, pediatric sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and other sleep disorders.
Professor Guilleminault visited China many times and launched hundreds of sleep courses, which helped many Chinese sleep medicine specialists. He contributed greatly to the medical education of sleep medicine in China.
We lose a great mentor and a dear friend. We
will always look back on our time with Professor Christian Guilleminault
and we will always think of him with love, friendship, and admiration. May our great condolences bring
Dr. Guilleminault’s friends and family.
