Paolo Sassone-CorsiIn Memory of Paolo Sassone-Corsi

June 8, 1956 -  July 22, 2020

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr. Paolo Sassone-Corsi, PhD, Director of the Center for Epigenetics and Metabolism, and Donald Bren Professor in the Department of Biological Chemistry, School of Medicine at UCI. Paolo passed away on July 22, 2020. Our hearts go out to his wife, Emiliana Borelli, PhD.

Paolo has contributed tremendously to the success and spirit of the Department. His contributions to the UCI campus and science, in general, cannot be overstated. We have lost a giant in the field of epigenetics and circadian biology. Paolo was an exceptional colleague, mentor, and friend, and will be greatly missed.
