It is with profound sadness that the university of Nebraska medical center division of infectious diseases announces the passing of Dr. Diana Florescu. She was a mentor to countless trainees and faculty in Transplant ID, and an inspiration to many more. She was recently honored with the UNMC Scientist Laureate Award, the highest recognition given to UNMC faculty researchers for their contributions to advancing the science of healthcare.

  • Dr. Florescu will be remembered for her tenacity, grit, kindness, determination, and a positive energy that lit up every room, especially the ballroom when she danced.

We were blessed to have her as an esteemed faculty member in our division and are so grateful that she got her flowers while she was still with us. Our division of ID, and department of internal medicine are devastated, heartbroken as we surround her family with the love and support they need during this time.  

More details can be found in this remembrance posting from UNMC, and  information about her memorial service can be found in her obituary. Please keep her home and work families in your prayers.
