SRF is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of WVU Davis College Professor Emeritus Joginder “Jo” Nath, recipient of the 2016 The Order of Vandalia, WVU’s highest honor for service to the university.
In the late ‘60s, Dr. Nath and two other professors were hired to start a genetics and developmental biology program at WVU. He is well-known for his generosity to the university. Shared Research Facilities is among his latest beneficiaries, having received donations of materials and supplies for the Electron Microscopy Facilities.
“It was very kind of him to think of SRF and of all the students university-wide that will benefit from having access to the special knives and other expensive items that he donated,” said SRF Director Trina Wafle.
He will be fondly remembered by all those he helped during his remarkable life. To send personal condolences and other symbolic gestures, please visit SmithFuneralAndCremationCare.com
