Humor is not often associated with scientists, but Dr. Peggy Olive bucked this trend. Her humor belied a formidable scientific intellect that contributed significantly to several areas of radiobiology related to the treatment of cancer. Despite being a lifetime non-smoker, Peggy died of a rare form of lung cancer on the 10th December 2018. Peggy was born in Montreal in 1948 and obtained her BSc in Physics from Bishop's University in Quebec in 1969. She then received an MSc in Biophysics from the University of Western Ontario and a PhD in Biochemistry from McMaster University in 1976. After post-doctoral work at the University of Wisconsin, she took a position at Johns Hopkins University in 1978 before being recruited to the British Columbia Cancer Research Centre (BCCRC) in 1983 by Dr. Lloyd Skarsgard to join a growing team of radiation biologists in Vancouver. She...
