Dr. Segall's enthusiasm for research in aging and his
generosity that helped creat the Center of Research and Education in Aging along
with Dr. Paola S. Timiras.
In the 1970s Dr. Segall was a graduate student under Dr. Paola S. Timiras
at the University of California, Berkeley. Since that time, they have
remained good friends and she appreciated his success in both the scientific
world and in business. Dr. Segall's enthusiasm in science and in education
continued to flourish throughout the years and he was an inspiration and a
model for UC Berkeley faculty and students.
In December of 1999 BioTime, Inc., under the guidance of Dr. Segall,
provided to the University of California, Berkeley a gift to create a
Center for Research and Education in Aging (CREA). In addition to this
tangible support, Dr. Segall contributed excellent lectures, provided
mentorship for student research, and participated in seminars/workshops
organized by CREA on the UC Berkeley campus.
It is in recognition of Dr. Segall's interests that BioTime, Inc. has
suggested to send donations to CREA in his memory. We very much appreciate
your gift and assure you that it will be of great help in supporting our
research and educational activities in aging on the Berkeley campus.
Dr. Paul Segall, passed way on June 23, 2003.
