In Memoriam: Celebrating Dr. Bruce Todd

Dr. Bruce Todd, who passed away suddenly in November 2012, joined the UBC Chemistry Department in 1990 as a Killam Post-Doctoral Fellow. In the following 13 years, Bruce taught a variety of chemistry courses including CHEM 151, CHEM 205, CHEM 211, and CHEM 311. Furthermore, from 2000-2011 he served as the Manager and Director of the Instrumentation Prototyping and Development Facility of the UBC Laboratory for Molecular Biophysics - a shared facility used by many members of the Chemistry Department.
