Many of those in attendance placed shovels full of earth
around the red bud sapling. French, with shovel in hand,
took his turn as Toxicologist James Huff, Ph.D., looked on.

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.
In this 2005 photo, Kari, right, is shown with two of the
young scientists he mentored, Martyn Darby, Ph.D., a
research fellow in the Laboratory of Neurobiology, and
Heping Cao, Ph.D., center, then a postdoctoral fellow.

Kennington, one of Kari's friends in the Peptide Hormone
Group, returned to the patio after taking her turn with the
shovel as French waited for the next participant.
