Uche Anyanwu, the first member of the DV group, passed away on Feb 21 at around 12:45 am. He lost his bravely fought battle with thymoma. He graduated from the DV Group in 2005 and was awarded Ph. D. for his work on “Soluble Polymer-supported Catalysts and Initiators” (Link to Thesis Defense Photos). He was an excellent scientist, artist and a great human being. We will miss him dearly.
