George Mason sadly notes the passing of Lisa Curry, director of laboratory safety, who died Dec. 20 from complications while giving birth to her second child.

Curry, a resident of Fairfax, joined the university in July following a national search. Despite her brief time at George Mason, “she made a tremendous impact on our institution and our community,” said Chris Hill, vice provost for research. Curry came to George Mason after two years as project scientist at Union Carbide Corporation in West Virginia.

Funeral services for Curry have already been held. However, a memorial observance at the university is currently being organized. Details will be forthcoming.
