Alan Rabson, one of the premier cancer pathologists of his generation whose most recent title at NCI was scientist emeritus, died on July 4, 2018. He was 92.

The cause of death was complications from cerebrovascular disease, said his son Arnold Rabson, the Laura Gallagher Chair of Developmental Biology, director of the Child Health Institute of New Jersey, and professor of pharmacology, pediatrics, pathology and laboratory medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Rabson came to NCI as a resident in pathologic anatomy in 1955.
