Symposium in remembrance of Jon Widom, 1955 – 2011

February 22, 2012

As many of you know, Jonathan Widom died suddenly last summer.  He was a Professor in the Department of Molecular Biosciences at Northwestern University.  The beauty of Jon’s scientific research was more than matched by his surpassing intellectual brilliance and personal warmth, and he is deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.  Jon’s family and colleagues have organized a symposium celebrating his life and work, which will be held at Northwestern’s Evanston campus on March 16, 2012.  Information about this gathering, called “Unraveling the Mysteries of Life:  Recognizing the Life and Work of Jon Widom”, can be found online here.  All are welcome. Additionally, tributes to Jon that will be shared at the meeting (and afterward) can be contributed here.
