From Jonathan Sweedler, Director, School of Chemical Sciences:
I am sad to report that our friend and colleague, Yi-Gui Gao, passed away on Friday, March 30, 2018.
He was a well-known staple of Noyes Lab, offering fist bumps and warm greetings on his daily walks in and around the building. Mr. Gao was well respected for his work during his tenure as a Biocrystallization Specialist in the SCS X-ray Lab, and would have been with the School 30 years this July. He brought joy to the School community on a daily basis, and his passing has left a void that cannot be filled.
