In Memory

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of two of our beloved faculty.

Massoud Simnad died on December 15, 2001 at his home in Virginia. A member of the National Academy of Engineering, Prof. Simnad joined UCSD in 1981 as an adjunct professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He was best known for his work on materials and fuels for nuclear energy and fusion research.

Sidney Sobin, adjunct professor of bioengineering, passed away on October 22, 2001. Prof. Sobin was the founder of the Cardiovascular Laboratory at the University of Southern California before coming to UCSD and a founding fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. He made fundamental contributions to the understanding of microvascular physiology. A scholarship fund has been established in Prof. Sobin's name. Please call (858) 534-4272 for information.
