Sumit Guha was born on December 12, 1970 in Calcutta, India, to his mother Gita Guha, and father Asit Guha. He grew up in Calcutta, and was always an excellent student. He enjoyed playing cricket, reading, and being a loving son to his parents. With the support of a very well educated family, his commitment to excellence, his perseverance and resourcefulness, Sumit completed his university studies with a degree in physics.
The Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) Care Fund was established at UBC to raise money for research into HLH. Your gift to this fund will pay tribute to Sumit’s memory while helping to support other patients faced with this condition.
I feel honoured to have known and worked with Sumit. He was so kind and sweet and I miss him still.

He came, He conquered (our hearts) and He left. As someone very closely related to him, I had the privilege of knowing him from close quarters. Although I am his father's cousin but due to his being just one and a half year younger to me, he was more of a kindred soul to me. I will always remember him…
