From Dr. Kelli Komro

Brian has been a cherished mentor, colleague, and friend since 1994. He hired me as a postdoctoral fellow at his UIC center and his influence has greatly affected my science and teaching. Brian’s many contributions live on. Delightfully, I was at the SPR meeting when Brian met Carol, and am so very thankful for the joy she brought into his life!  I have wonderful memories of Brian, and share this photo taken in front of the White House during the Presidency of Barack Obama, following a joyful SPR dinner with Brian, Tony Biglan, Ron Prinz, and other colleagues. Rest in peace my dear colleague and friend.
