Dr. Fogel passed away on March 30. Dr. John Clarkson, M.D., who succeeded Dr. Fogel as dean and shared an office with him, remarked, “He helped place us on the national stage.” “We became a significant facility for AIDS, diabetes, and cancer research during his tenure.” I’ll miss him because you always felt better after speaking with him when I called him. He had an uncanny ability to make you feel better about yourself and about things.”
