Dr. Richard Wall passed away on August 19th, 2023

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.
