UCR Toxicologist Bob Krieger passes away

Bob Krieger, a UCR extension toxicologist and long-time ETOX faculty member, passed away on July 26 from complications from a stroke.  Bob was fine colleague and dedicated mentor who will be missed by members of the Program and the University.  He had a distinguished career extending knowledge on pesticides and toxicology to the larger community outside of the university.  He received numerous awards and recognitions including the Society of Toxicology's Public Communication Award and its Education Award.  He was also elected as a AAAS Fellow.  A more detailed description of his work and accomplishments can be found here.  Our condolences go to Ana and the rest of Bob's family.  He will definitely be missed.
