Remembering Obesity Initiative Director Cliff Baile
Clifton A. “Cliff” Baile, a D.W. Brooks Distinguished Professor and GRA Eminent Scholar in Biotechnology at the University of Georgia whose recent research focused on the physiology and biochemistry of obesity and bone disorders, died May 19 following a cerebral aneurysm. He was 74.
“Cliff Baile touched so many here at UGA from graduate students, staff, faculty and administrators,” said Deborah Murray, associate dean for Extension and outreach in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. “He always valued everyone and never discounted what you were or who you were. He knew that if we were going to tackle obesity we all had to work together. He loved UGA and the people who worked here.”
