    This whole situation is so sad. It makes it even more so when you personally know of someone who was killed or injured. Sending many prayers to everyone who has been affected by this senseless act.

    We Lost a Professor In the VT Massacre

    As many of you know, I am a research scientist in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. This department is divided into several subgroups -- the clinical (doctors treating patients) section, the radiation biology section that does all the molecular and cellular research on radiation and cancer, and the physics section (the physicists calculate how to operate the radiation machines in order to give prescribed doses of radiation to people's tumors).

    The physics section is part of a joint program with Virginia Tech called the School of Biomedical Engineering and Science, in which graduate students from both VT and Wake participate (classes are usually done by videoconference so a prof at either university can teach students at both places at once). Even though I have become a molecular/cellular biologist over the years, my Ph.D. is technically in biomedical physics, I have a relationship with the physics section and know many professors and graduate students in that area.

    This morning I was told by another physics prof that one of the VT professors for this program, Dr. Kevin Granata, was killed in the shootings on the VT Campus yesterday. Please send prayers to his students and family, who are all devastated. If you don't pray, please just send a few hugs and some healing thoughts their way....
