巨星墜つ  

今朝メールを開くと以下のようなお知らせが届いた。
偉大なる生化学者が1人亡くなった。

彼とは留学中2度程話しただけだが、会話の間緊張していたことを覚えている。同じ講座にいたのに余り話す機会がなかったのは残念。なお当時同じフロアーに3人のノーベル賞受賞者がいた。あんなとこで勉強できたのはまさに幸運というほかない。

Dear Biochemistry alumni,
By now many of you have learned of the passing last Friday of our beloved Arthur, following a week long battle against respiratory failure. As we mourn his loss, we have begun thinking of ways to honor and remember him and all his contributions to our Department. This summer we started planning a scientific symposium and reunion for all alumni and current members of our Department, marking the 50th Anniversary of the Department of Biochemistry. The date has been set for August 22-24, 2008 and you will be receiving more information about it soon. I hope you will be able to join us for this event, which, sadly now, will be dedicated in Arthur's memory.
Best regards,
Mark Krasnow
