Carole Kemm Regan, former laboratory manager of NCI’s Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology, suddenly passed away at the age of 72 on Jan. 7.  

Regan joined the National Cancer Institute and the precursor to the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology (LCMB) more than 40 years ago. When she retired in 2017 to spend more time with her grandchildren, she was then the longest-serving member of the lab.   

Reflecting on her memory, LCMB chief Dr. Larry Samelson said, “Carole was so warm and always there to help fix everyone’s issues small or large. We all depended on her efforts to make LCMB a better place.”

Regan is survived by daughter Kara and son-in-law John Paul and her three grandchildren: Bobby, Eva and Joseph.
