On June 6, friends of Toxicologist Frank Kari filled Rodbell C to remember their colleague during a special slide show presentation narrated by Research Physiologist Jef French, Ph.D., and organized with the help of Biologist Betsy Kennington. Afterwards, most of those in attendance took part in the planting of Kari's tree, a red bud donated by his colleagues in the Blackshear and Petrovich labs.
