The Fumio Matsumura Annual Symposium Fund was established in memory of distinguished professor of environmental toxicology and entomology, Fumio Matsumura. Known as "one of the grand masters of insect toxicology", Professor Matsumura was a member of the UC Davis faculty since 1987 until the time of death in December 2012. This fund will support an annual symposium hosted by the Department of Environmental Toxicology.
The Marion Miller Memorial Fund is an endowment created to memorialize Dr. Miller and her commitment and dedication to students. Miller, a native of Scotland and expert in men's reproductive health, joined the UC Davis faculty in 1986 and passed away in 2011. The fund will support graduate students in the Pharmacology and Toxicology Graduate Group and undergraduates in Environmental Toxicology in alternating years.
