I have unfortunately learned today that our lab's collaborator, Andreas Doncic, has passed away after a fatal traffic accident in Dallas, Texas. Andreas was a group leader at UT Southwestern Medical Center and his passion lay in learning how cells make decisions. Our labs recently collaborated and published a project together and were looking forward to future potential joint efforts.
When he visited our lab last year, I remember Andreas being one of the warmest and funniest scientists I've met. Andreas' passing is a great loss for his family and the scientific community as well. We keep his wife Kei and children Maya and Alexander in our thoughts. Thank you Andreas, and I'm sorry we must say good bye so soon.
A collection page has been set up towards the college fund for Andreas' children:
