Memorial Fund for Davis Postdoc Killed in Ethiopia

October 10, 2016

Many readers were saddened by the story last week of Sharon Gray, a plant biology postdoc at the University of California, Davis, who was killed by a stone-throwing protest (having nothing to do with her visit or work) while she was on a research trip to Ethiopia.

Her husband and other relatives have created a fund in her memory to support the mentoring of young women in science. You can find more information, and donate, here.

Her departments at both UC Davis and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she received her bachelor's degree and Ph.D., created photo galleries of Gray.
