The Cumming School of Medicine is saddened to announce the passing of Dr. Robert (Bob) Lee on March 31, 2017.

Bob served as founding head of the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Calgary, president of the Canadian Neurological Society, editor-in-chief of the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences and executive vice-president of the Canadian Neurological Sciences Foundation. He was team doctor on the 1986 Canadian Mount Everest Expedition.
