According to publication on thedartmouth,

David Bucci served as PBS chair until July 2019, leading the department through a difficult stretch. Three former PBS professors were forced to resign from their positions in the summer of 2018 following allegations of sexual misconduct, and a lawsuit filed later that year by former Dartmouth students alleged that College officials had turned a blind eye to years of accusations against the former professors.

Bucci’s research focused on brain mechanisms underlying learning, memory and attention. His most recent studies involved research into the modern behavioral, chemogenetic, neuroanatomical and biochemical techniques in rodent models.

“We will remember Dave as a kind and generous scholar, teacher, colleague, and community member,” Hanlon and Smith wrote.

David Bucci left behind his wife, Katie, and three children.
