Eran Karmon, 27, a former newspaper science writer and founder of a research magazine, committed suicide March 5 in Berkeley, Calif.

Karmon's death was reported March 17 by The Seattle Times, where he worked last year as the newspaper's first science writing fellow under a program with the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Karmon was a doctoral candidate in biophysics at the University of California with studies that also included geology and mathematical epidemiology. His resume included a Fulbright Fellowship and Barry M. Goldwater scholarship.

He was the founder and editor in chief of Berkeley Science Review, a magazine of research by Berkeley graduate students.

Karmon had scaled 800-foot rock faces, hiked across glaciers and once talked his way into China without a visa by chatting with a border guard in Nepali.

"He wasn't afraid of barriers," said Leor Weinberger, a biophysics graduate student who was modeling the AIDS virus with Karmon. "He would break barriers as a rule sometimes."

Survivors include his parents, a brother and two sisters.
