The Loss of an NF Legend: Dr. Vincent Riccardi

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Vincent “Vic” Riccardi, a pioneering expert in neurofibromatosis (NF) research and a founder of the Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.

Dr. Riccardi’s contributions over a career of more than 40 years were groundbreaking. He wrote many important papers and books that shaped NF research and treatment. As one of the first to specialize in NF, he laid the foundation for modern diagnosis and treatment approaches, significantly impacting the lives of people with NF and providing hope to them and their families.

He founded The Neurofibromatosis Institute in 1980 and set up a top clinic for patient care. Beyond his research, Dr. Riccardi was known for his compassion and willingness to help, offering support and advice to patients and fellow researchers.

A mentor and friend to many, Dr. Riccardi inspired a new generation of NF researchers, and his legacy is reflected in their continued work. Dr. Riccardi was dedicated to NF and especially the NF community until the end. His creativity, passion, determination, and dedication will be greatly missed.
