Aaron Novick, a pioneer in the field of molecular biology, died December 21, 2000 in Eugene, Oregon, at the age of 81.
A memorial service will be held on a date to be announced in January.
In 1947, Leo Szilard asked Aaron to join him in "an adventure in biology." Their collaboration, at the University of Chicago, lasted until 1953. This website includes audio clips of Aaron reminiscing about Szilard.
In 1959, Aaron founded the Institute of Molecular Biology at the University of Oregon. He retired from the University in 1984.
I (Gene Dannen) will miss Aaron greatly as a mentor and friend.
