The Faculty and Staff of the NIMBB are saddened to announce the passing of Prof. Cynthia Hedreyda, Ph.D. this afternoon, 6 July 2021. She was 65 years old. Prof. Hedreyda was a former director of the Institute and a distinguished member of the NIMBB faculty until her retirement in Dec 2020. She will be fondly remembered by numerous colleagues and students, especially from the Institute who have learned and grew from her expertise, leadership, and friendship. We greatly condole with the family of Prof. Hedreyda, “Ma’m H” as we fondly called her. Details of her wake will be announced later.
