"Kim was a unique person and will be greatly missed by her collaborators and both the University of Pittsburgh and across the world. An important role model in both her research and teaching, she combined skills in statistical and epidemiological methods with expertise in clinical laboratory approaches, understanding of human biology and applications to preventative and clinical medicine."
- Lewis Kuller, emeritus professor and long-time research collaborator
"[Kim was] a meticulously well-organized, yet creative, researcher who expressed great joy in the process of scientific discovery. She shared her enthusiasm for her work and inspired her students and colleagues."
- Anne Newman, department chair
"Sorrow fills our hearts at Kim's passing, but it's important to concentrate on her life--a life that exemplified brilliance, curiosity, hard work, dedication, achievement, and, most of all, a quiet strength and generous spirit."
-Jane Cauley, colleague
