Dear Colleagues:

Some of you may have already heard of the death of Dr. Gil Veith, an ASCCT 
member and influential computational toxicologist. Gil and his colleague, 
Hristo, gave the ASCCT a webinar on Effectopedia in 2011.

You can read two nice tributes by some other ASCCT members here: 

I am passing along a note about how people can offer a tribute, should they 
wish to:

We all have been inspired by Gil’s gentle train of thoughts, painting new 
horizons for us to explore concept-by-concept. His last project Effectopedia 
was even more like him, embodying the spirit of collaboration in search for 
order and beauty in scientific knowledge. If you are scientist, perhaps the 
best way to keep him close is to help build the critical mass of knowledge that 
Effectopedia needs in order to inspire others to contribute. This will ensure 
that Gil’s vision of an ordered universe of knowledge will live and grow with 
future generations as a true recognition of his brilliance. If you do not know 
where to start please contact Hristo Aladjov 
(aladjov@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:aladjov@xxxxxxxxx>) for assistance. The most valuable 
gift for Gil will be your time and expertise but if you do not feel that you 
can help in adding pathways or smaller pieces of knowledge and still want to 
contribute toward Effectopedia’s implementation you can donate towards the 
software development by going to ‘Effectopedia.org<http://effectopedia.org/>’ 
and looking under  ’Donate’ which links to a PayPal donation form at the 
Sourceforge.net<http://sourceforge.net/> page of the project.

I may also be able to answer some questions about Effectopedia if you like.

Kind regards,

Kristie Sullivan
Secretary, ASCCT
