ACHORD pays Tribute to Me2

We were sad to have said goodbye to a close friend within the ACHORD group, with the death of Dr. Sumit ‘Me2’ Majumdar on January 19, 2018.

Me2 was a long-time member of ACHORD, a successful and widely cited author and a sought-after speaker. As a mentor, he helped train future clinicians, researchers and clinician-scientists. His contributions to ACHORD and academic life at the University of Alberta influenced so many people. Most of all, he was a husband, a father, a son, a friend and a colleague to many. He will be greatly missed by our ACHORD group, by trainees, colleagues and collaborators throughout the University of Alberta and beyond.  Our deepest sympathies are extended to his wife (Dr. Anisa Khaliq), children, and extended family.
