Emerita Professor P. Timiras of MCB
Last Friday, Prof. Timiras passed away. She had undergone heart surgery in the Spring of this year and was not teaching classes this semester as a result. I met her through a friend and she agreed to allow me to work under her supervision on research in Donner (a LBL building). She was one of the most encouraging professors that I have had the honor of working with. I was planning on working on a friend's neurobiology research project, but Prof. Timiras was encouraging me to start my own project to work with curcumin and the anti-carcinogenic effects of it. She told me that research can go only as far as ones imagination, so one should develop that imagination. I regret that I will be unable to carry on her work, but I'll remember her words and the things she taught me in the short time we knew each other.
Thank you Professor Timiras.
