BMS mourns a colleague

Our colleague, Allison Doupe, MD, PhD, in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry, passed away on Friday, October 24, 2014. With her passing, UCSF and biomedical science have lost a scholar of extraordinary intelligence and erudition and a campus leader. Dr. Doupe was a psychiatrist and systems neuroscientist who became a leader of her field, the study of sensorimotor learning and its neural control. More information about her career can be found here. Dr. Doupe was a member of the BMS Program, and we will greatly miss her mentorship, warmth and collegiality.
