In Memoriam

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of our friend and colleague, Professor Liz Howell.  Liz joined the Department of Biochemistry as an Assistant Professor in January of 1988.  We knew from the beginning that she was a brilliant experimentalist. Little did we know then that underneath Liz’s quiet, kind, and cheerful demeanor lay an intellectual force who would have a profound impact on our department during a stellar 31 year career.
