Dr. Judith Campisi was an incredibly accomplished scientist that moved cancer research forward for humanity at The Buck Institute for Research on Aging. She was an even better, no-nonsense, and kind person. She took the time to pressure test a company I was working on while at Buck and supported me and the company at an early stage. Dr. Campisi and I worked on this video together for her lab focused on the impact of chemotherapy and senescent cells. She will never be forgotten. RIP Judy.”
