David Y. Cooper III, 88, emeritus professor in the department of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and a longtime surgical researcher, died Friday, Aug. 2, of cancer at Waverly Heights in Gladwyne. A 1948 graduate of Penn's medical school, Dr. Cooper was widely known for his work on the cytochrome P-450, a series of enzymes involved in drug metabolism. In layman's terms, Dr. Cooper was looking at how the enzymes acquired the ability to perform biological functions in the body, and why. The goal was to better understand how medicines break down once they are taken or administered.

Stephanie Yen-Mun Liem Azar was used to being told she was too young to do something. Too young at age 6 to learn to play a church organ. Too young at 16 to leave her family in Haverford and live on her own in Philadelphia while attending the Curtis Institute of Music. Too young at 20 for medical school. Her parents, Gie and Lisa Liem, discovered early on that they couldn't slow her down. She accomplished those goals, and much more, before she did something that was tragically premature.

Brian L. Strom is having trouble sleeping. Not just because the physician - currently executive vice dean for institutional affairs at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine - soon will give up teaching, his primary care practice, and the research that has brought him national recognition. No, Strom said, he is kept up nights with anticipation. In December, Strom will join Rutgers University as chancellor of its newly created Biomedical and Health Sciences umbrella organization, overseeing 14 schools and units, including pieces of the defunct University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

LAST JUNE 1, there was a most unusual ceremony in an apartment in Gladwyne's Waverly Heights. There sat a distinguished looking 88-year-old gentleman dressed incongruously in cap and gown, and there stood Teresa Soufas, dean of Temple University's College of Liberal Arts, and vice dean Jayne Drake, both in full academic regalia. They were there to give Alfred Mayer Sellers a long-delayed bachelor's degree. What made the occasion even more incongruous was the fact that Alfred M. Sellers was Dr. Alfred Sellers, a prominent cardiologist, researcher and professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

In the 27 years that Stanley Austin has lived at the South Fifth Street rowhouse in Camden where his wife grew up, he's raised five children and started a DJ business. Austin's memory-full house will be torn down, along with another dozen properties, as Rowan University paves the way for Block 189 to be transformed into a parking garage with first-floor shops. The block is bounded by Fifth, Benson, Williams, and Washington Streets. Since June, Rowan has been in negotiations with the owners of 22 properties that make up the block behind the new Cooper Medical School of Rowan University.
