Dr. Matthew Chumpol Mireles
August 6, 1964 - August 31, 2013

It is with deep sadness we announce that Dr. Matthew Mireles, president of the Rice University - Texas Medical Center Chapter of Sigma Xi, passed away on August 31, 2013, after a long battle with metastatic colorectal cancer. His journey peacefully ended, and a humble life, well-considered, was quietly extinguished. He will be greatly missed.
