David Kupfer, Ph.D. (1925-2004)

It is with much sadness that the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences acknowledge the death of one of our Editorial Board members, Dr. David Kupfer (1925-2004). Dr. Kupfer was a member of our Editorial Board since 1998, and his carefully considered reviews of manuscripts and input of ideas and advice will be greatly missed. David had a long and very active scientific career, the major part of which was at the Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology. When the Worcester Foundation was absorbed into the University of Massachusetts in 1997, David was invited to join the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology of the Medical School in Worcester where he served as Professor, later on becoming Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at that institution. David was well liked, a friendly and hardworking individual who was always ready to lend a hand. He had both national and international recognition in the field of cytochrome P450 and drug metabolism, where he made major contributions to our understanding of the metabolism of anti-cancer agents, such as tamoxifen and chlorotrianisene, and of endocrine disrupting agents, notably methoxychlor. David had a long history of service to the Drug Metabolism Division of ASPET, and he served on a number of other journal Editorial Boards and on the NIH Grants Review Pharmacology Study Section. His research excellence, pleasant manner and true collegiality will be greatly missed.
