The iBiology Team is deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Susan Lindquist. We were privileged to work with Sue on multiple occasions. She was always great in the studio and an incredible speaker, eager to share her work and passion for science in front of the camera.
We are forever grateful for her invaluable contributions to the understanding of protein folding. Sue was a pioneer in establishing yeast as a model to study prions and how protein misfolding contributes to disease. We are also forever grateful for her commitment to mentoring, science communication and education and for her unwavering support for iBiology.
We will miss you, dear friend.
