After the unexpected death of Professor Józef Kałuża at the age of 74 on the 26th of July 2003, not only Polish neuropathology but also Polish philosophy of medical investigations lost one of its most renowned minds. Beginning in 1949, Professor Kałuża studied medical sciences for five years at the Medical Faculty of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow. He did his Ph.D. thesis in neuropathology (The dynamics of morphological changes in brain caused by mechanical injury) in the Department of Neuropathology of the Polish Academy of Science. In 1962 he received a Rockefeller Foundation scholarship and spent one year at the National Institutes of Health (in Bethesda, Maryland, USA). In 1981 Professor Kaluza was promoted to a tenured professorship in neuropathology. He is the author of more than 110 articles published in medical periodicals and coauthor of many chapters in medical handbooks.
