DEANE--Disque. The Rockefeller University community mourns the passing of our longtime friend Disque Deane. A member of the Board of Trustees (1987 to 1990), Disque was a visionary leader in the effort to advance AIDS research. We deeply appreciate his generous support, from the earliest years, for HIV research conducted by Ralph Steinman and the late Zanvil Cohn--work that continues today under Dr. Steinman's leadership. Along with his wife, Carol, Disque also generously launched an innovative research program at Rockefeller in neuroimmunology and inflammation, which is directed by Dr. Karen Bulloch. We are deeply grateful for his passionate commitment to advancing research and education, and his embrace of crucial health, science, and education initiatives at Rockefeller and many other prestigious institutions. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his beloved Carol; to their children, Anne and Carl; to his daughter Kathryn Deane, a member of The Rockefeller University Council; to his nephew Curt Deane, a dedicated University volunteer; and to all of the family. Russell Carson, Chair Paul Nurse, President Ralph Steinman, Professor Bruce McEwen, Professor Karen Bulloch, Research Associate Professor The Rockefeller University
