Our department is saddened by the passing of Dr. Richard Wall on August 19th, 2023. A brilliant intellectual, Dick joined our department as a chemist. His expertise in medicinal chemistry led to a number of fruitful collaborations within our department, including the discovery of vernakalant. Dick was instrumental in the development of the B.Sc. pharmacology program and he was a beloved academic and content advisor to countless undergraduate and graduate students. We extend our condolences to Dr. Wall’s family. He is dearly missed.
Dr. Peter Choi
