We were deeply saddened to learn that former BMB Professor Danny J. Schnell passed away on December 15th, 2021. Danny was a beloved professor, a wonderful friend and colleague, and an outstanding member of the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) campus for nearly fifteen years before continuing his career at Michigan State University.

Danny Schnell was an exceptional researcher, mentor, and friend who inspired many. He will be deeply missed by his colleagues at UMass, Michigan State, and around the world.
