Rick CS Lin
It is with great sadness and sense of loss for the neuroscience community that we announce the passing of C.S. “Rick” Lin, PhD, Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomical Sciences; Psychiatry and Human Behavior; Pediatrics; and Executive Director of the Center for Development Disorders Research - University of Mississippi Medical Center on January 10, 2017. He was 72. Rick was not only an accomplished neuroanatomist/neurophysiologist but one who had a profound influence on the work of his colleagues at the University of Mississippi and former institutions where he held faculty positions: Duke University, University of Texas Health Science Center – Dallas, and Hahnemann/Drexel University in Philadelphia. He will be sorely missed for his contributions to science in fields ranging from sensory systems to autism, and as a mentor, friend, and advisor.
