The entire academic community of Titu Maiorescu University is deeply saddened by the passing of General Academician (r) Professor Vasile Cândea, PhD, a founding member and Rector of Titu Maiorescu University, a leading personality in the field of cardiovascular surgery, a professor of high academic standing, highly prized and respected by dozens of generations of students, master’s graduates and PhD candidates.

Professor Vasile Cândea was a founding President of the Romanian Academy of Scientists and has devoted his entire life to his academic career, being a model for us all, both through his professional achievements and his human values.

We will keep him forever in our memories!
May God give him eternal rest!
