In Memory of Jeffrey Nye, M.D., Ph.D

Jeffrey Nye

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Jeffrey Nye M.D., Ph.D. Jeff was a tremendously enthusiastic and committed member of the ASENT leadership. He chaired the Development Committee and, even in the last months of his life, continued to reach out to his extensive professional and personal network to successfully spread the word about this organization and to encourage involvement. Jeff was a delightful man—highly intelligent, incisive and decisive, generous, kind and funny. His passing is a loss not only to ASENT, but to the entire community of those working to bring neurological therapies to patients in need. In his honor, the ASENT Leadership Fund to support annual meeting scholarships to basic and clinical neuroscientists will be renamed the Jeff rey Nye M.D., Ph.D. Leadership Fund.

Martha Morrell, MD
ASENT President
