Content warning: Death

UC Berkeley’s molecular and cell biology department announced the death of campus undergraduate and department member Britney Ng in a departmentwide email Friday.

According to the announcement, Ng had worked in the department for more than a year. In response to learning of Ng’s death, the department has arranged Counseling and Psychological Services and Employee Assistance Program professionals to be present at the Li Ka Shing Center Aug. 3 for staff and student support.

Campus will be holding a memorial to commemorate Ng and other campus community members that have recently died at an annual ceremony Sept. 1. In addition, the molecular and cell biology department will hold its own in-house memorial for Ng in a separate announcement.

Since at least the last memorial, this is the 11th student death to be announced by campus.
