Remembering Michael Rossmann

Michael Rossmann, Hanley Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences, died May 14 in West Lafayette, Indiana. He was 88. A giant in the field of structural biology, came to Purdue in 1964 and stayed nearly 55 years. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society of London. We mourn his loss even as we celebrate his legacy and life well-lived.
