Dr. Donald Low (1945-2013)

“It is with great sadness that we write with the news of Dr. Donald Low's death.

Don was well known to many of us in his various roles as a microbiologist at Mount Sinai and the University Health Network and then with Public Health Ontario. He also served a term as President of the Canadian Infectious Diseases Society. He had an integral role in research into microbial diseases and in the training of many Canadians now dedicated to the areas of clinical infectious diseases and diagnostic microbiology.

Don will be missed by the Microbiology and Infectious Diseases communities of Canada and we send our condolences to his wife, Maureen, children, grandchildren and to his entire extended family.”

Mark Joffe
President, AMMI Canada


“He was larger than life but also very personable and kind to all comers. He will be greatly missed by the infectious disease and medical micro community.”
