A tribute to Dr. Frank Jeal

Frank Jeal tribute

It was with much sadness that we marked the passing of Frank Jeal on the 28th of Aug 2017. Frank had been part of the Zoology Department and taught Zoology students for over 50 years and continued to teach until early this year. He will be much missed by us all. RIP Frank. We have put together a booklet of tributes and memories of Frank from colleagues and former students all over the world.

Gwen Deslyper was awarded the Frank Jeal studentship to further her PhD studies in parasite biology. Professor Yvonne Buckley said: “Frank Jeal was passionate about zoology and he inspired and guided 50 years of students at Trinity. It is entirely fitting that this scholarship in his name enables another Trinity Zoology student to further the study of zoology and its benefits for society”.
