We are deeply shocked to hear the sad demise of Dr Gopi Podila. Our sincere condolences to all his family members. We do remember his down to earth attitude. He mixed very freely with all of us when he visited Hyderabad and his rendering of song 'Tharali Ravamma' (a telugu patriotic song ) will always be remmeberd. May his soul rest in peace and may God give all the strength to Vani, children and all the family members in this sad and difficult times and in years to come.

I am deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Dr. Podila, an accomplished scientist and colleague. My sincere condolences go out to his family, and his friends, colleagues and students.

Dr. Podila accepted my invitation to conduct a workshop on "Responsible Conduct in Research" in August 2003 at Alabama A&M University. We were all impressed with his knowledge and expertise. To the Podila family, I trust the memories that you keep in your heart will hold you close to your loved one, and will help bring comfort and peace.

I cannot ever remember Gopi losing his cool - always on even keel - perceptive and a unique sense of humor that used to show up unexpectedly. Gopi helped teach the fundamentals of biology to my bioinformatics class - shared his notes, his expertise, his time. As we, in chemical engineering were struggling with designing an introductory biology class for ALL of our chemical engineers, Gopi stepped in with very good ideas - that class, taught during Spring semester is something that our chemical engineers really enjoy. We had talked about expanding our biology requirement to at least two classes for all of our chemical engineers. Gopi was a terrific advisor - as I heard often from his students. He was very generous with his laboratory and the equipment he had - I know, my students and I have benefited from such generosity. He was always full of ideas - not just about plants and fungi and symbiosis - but about education in general and what we could do at UAHuntsville in bioinformatics. He was widely known and admired for his knowledge and the ability to share such knowledge, I did.

This is a terrible loss for us, on campus - I cannot even imagine how his family feels. Gopi's life had an enormous impact on so many here in Huntsville, we will always remember him.

I do not understand why his life was taken away from us, from his family.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

I went to graduate school with Dr. Podila many years ago. He was a dedicated and talented scientist and a warm and caring person with a gentle soul. He made me my first vegetarian entrees 10+ years before I became vegetarian.

He will be missed.

I grieve with the Podila family in their tragic loss. He has such kind eyes. I know his family will miss him very much, and that it feels impossible to make sense of what has happened in their lives. I want his family to know that so many people, here in Huntsville, and across the nation, have gathered with them, in spirit, sending strength, hope, and prayers for healing.

Our deepest condolences and prayers are with the Podila family. We pray that God provide you with guidance, peace and strenth during these difficult times.
