Nobel Laureates


David J. Prior

February 2, 2012

It is with sadness that the MBL announces the passing of David J. Prior, the chancellor of the University of Virginia-Wise, who died suddenly on February 2nd.

Dr. Prior was an MBL Corporation Member since 2009 and had several MBL course affiliations. He was an alum of the 1969 Invertebrate Zoology course and on the faculty in 1976, and was faculty for the Neural Systems & Behavior course in 1978 and 1979.

The MBL flag will be lowered in his memory for three days starting tomorrow.
