Ellen was such a fabulous professional colleague and friend. She was instrumental in the very first NIMH grant that I received and we remained friends for 30 years after that. I saw her in so many wonderful places around the world from Asia to Europe and at so many meetings in the US. She was always there for advice and support through the toughest of times, both personally and professionally. She was a role model for how NIMH program staff should function. She is so missed by so many of us in the field. Truly a warm hearted and dedicated soul.
