The Whitehead Institute community is saddened to hear about the passing of longtime supporter, Thomas "Tom" Gochberg. Tom, along with his wife Letty, were valued members of Whitehead Institute’s Board of Associates. Tom held a steadfast belief in the Institute’s focus on fundamental biomedical research and he supported its work through his and Letty’s generosity-including his time and effort to host events in New York City where he lived. A link to his full obituary can be found here.
