Tributes to Erica Pederson
Erica Pederson was a much loved and truly dedicated member of the DNA Sequencing Facility Team. It is with the greatest sadness that we report that Erica passed away on May 1, 2016, after a brief, but a brave, battle with cancer. She joined the DNA Sequencing Facility in August 2010 and quickly became a force to be reckoned with. She was a conscientious, skillful, and meticulous worker who contributed tremendously to the expansion of the facility’s services and instrumentation as well as to creation of our training manual and the updating of our SOP. She helped organize numerous seminars and workshops and acted as the record keeper of all the events for the facility. She was always eager to learn and gain new knowledge and skills and loved to talk about new technologies and gadgets.
At personal level, Erica was a wonderful, warm and compassionate person who cared about the well being of everybody around her, including her four-legged friends. She was always very patient, treated everybody with the utmost respect and nurtured numerous undergraduate students and new staff members.
We all miss her dearly,
Hitomi Asahara and the DNA Sequencing Facility Team
