The passage of time has not made the passing of Professor Brian Axsmith any easier. As a department, as a university, and as a community we are still hurting. We’ve lost a great friend, colleague, and teacher but we all have so many great memories of Brian.
For many of us, Brian’s passing made the harsh, cruel reality of the COVID-19 pandemic real. As the pandemic continues to ravage communities across the globe, the biology department, is urging all of you and your families to stay safe.
