Memorial For Kay, The Latest Bicyclist To Be Killed In Tampa Bay

A friend at USF Health passed this along:


Many of you have asked about memorial information for postdoctoral fellow Kayoto Ishizuka, PhD, who was killed last weekend while riding her bicycle home from her laboratory in Medical Microbiology in the College of Medicine.

Her family is now here from Japan, and the department, chair Bob Deschenes, with many friends, are holding a lantern ceremony memorial on the USF Tampa campus at Simmons Park (West Pond) tomorrow, Friday, 5-8pm (Magnolia St.-East of Moffitt).

Her aikido and bicycle clubs are all joining in. They have a memorial Facebook page here:

Memorial travel fund:

Several offices, the College of Medicine, the department, the graduate school, the dean ... have all contributed to a travel award in Dr. Ishizuka's name. Her bravery in studying abroad is an inspiration. If you wish to contribute to the fund, please contact the Department of Molecular Medicine, Dana Cole,
