To our friends in the UC Davis Community,

Christina Takanishi, a UC Davis alumnus and postdoc, passed away on January 25th, 2012.  To honor her memory, the BMCDB graduate program and the DEB program are co-sponsoring a remembrance and celebration of her life at UC Davis. This event will be held at the UC Davis Recreation Pool Lodge on Saturday, February 18th, between 10:00 AM and noon. Light refreshments will be served.  Please also see the Facebook event:

We are collecting photos, stories, and memories of Chris from her time at UC Davis to share at the remembrance. There will be a slideshow, and materials will be provided to write down your stories which will be collected into an album for her family. Please e-mail any digital photos to for inclusion in the slideshow, and we can also arrange to print these photos for the album.  If you are unable to attend, please feel free to send any stories that you might want to share to the address above and we will also include them in the album.

This news has shaken our entire community. Please join us to remember a fellow friend and colleague, and to support each other through this tragedy.
