Dr. Richard W. Burry, associate professor of neuroscience and director of the Campus Microscopy and Imaging Facility (CMIF) at Ohio State University, will retire March 31 after almost 35 years with OSU.

Throughout his career, he taught gross anatomy to hundreds of medical students, as well as various courses in neuroscience and microscopy.

Burry established the CMIF as a major shared-use facility that now houses several million dollars worth of new and recently acquired electron microscopes.

His research involved growth factors and transmission of signals in nerve cells, particularly as related to spinal cord injury. Burry developed a new technique for preparing nerve tissue for microscopic examination.

His book, "Immunocytochemistry: A Practical Guide for Biomedical Research," was published in 2010.

Burry is a graduate of Beloit College and the University of Colorado Medical Center. He has served as president of the Histochemical Society, an editorial board member for the Society's Journal and was the recipient of the Carpenter-Rasch Award in 2008.
