In memory of Frank Tendick

Frank Tendick, Bioengineering PhD 1993, passed away on February 7, 2018. In addition to being an alumnus, Tendick taught Introduction to Robotics and several other graduate and undergraduate courses in bioengineering at UC Berkeley for many years. He established and directed the Milton J. Pearl and Leonard D. Rosenman Surgical Skills Center at UCSF, where he was also a faculty member, from 2003–2007. Our fondest thoughts and memories go with him.
