Dr. Theodore E. Cohn, Professor of Bioengineering and Vision Science, passed away on May 25 at Alta Bates Hospital in Oakland following a three-year battle with lymphoma. He was 64.
Cohn was one of the first faculty to join the new Department of Bioengineering, as well as a member of the UCB/UCSF Graduate Group in Bioengineering since its inception. Ted was a popular teacher, dedicated mentor, and valued colleague to students and faculty across departments, colleges and campuses.
Memorial contributions for a mentorship fund for undergraduate students can be made to the “Ted Cohn Mentorship Fund for Undergraduate Research,” in care of Congregation Beth El, 1301 Oxford St., Berkeley, CA 94709. Plans are pending for a campus memorial celebration this fall. Please read more about Ted’s life at the Berkeley News Center and the LATimes .
