In Remembrance of Bruce Anderson

It is with sadness we announce that Bruce Anderson, who was a BCMB faculty member from 1963 to 1970, has passed away. Anderson was one of the four founding faculty members of the UT-Knoxville Biochemistry Department when it launched in 1963. After leaving UT, he became head of the Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition at Virginia Polytechnic University. He kept that position for 12 years, and then returned to teaching and research until he retired in 1998. Anderson studied the structure and function of enzymes. He published more than 150 research articles and trained 14 doctorate (six at UT) and five master’s students.
