Norton Zinder (1928--2012) (2012)


Norton Zinder, a founder and leader of the then nascent field of molecular biology half a century ago, passed away on the 3rd of February in the Bronx, New York. He was a Professor at the Rockefeller University, where we were privileged to have been his graduate students and experienced how insightful mentorship and a fertile environment can inspire young students to do great science.
