It is with great sadness that the Biophysical Society of Canada announces the passing of Dr. Arthur G. Szabo.  Dr Szabo “Art” had a vibrant scientific career that began as a Research Officer in the Institute for Biological Sciences (IBS) at the NRC-CNRC in Ottawa in 1967, culminating with him serving as Dean of Science at Wilfrid Laurier University from 2000-2007.  During his scientific career, Art earned an international reputation for his work on fluorescence studies of protein structure and function.  Not only was Art a “cook in the chemistry lab”, but also in the kitchen, where he enjoyed making elaborate creations that he paired perfectly with a good bottle of wine. Art will be sorely missed by his former mentees and the Biophysics community world-wide, to which he brought his intellect, enthusiasm, humor and generosity.  For more information on Art’s scientific career, please read the linked tribute.
