Nobel Laureate/Mensch Roger Tsien Passes Away

Some of you may recall the case of Douglas Prasher, the almost-Nobel laureate found to be driving a shuttle van for a Toyota dealer. Later Roger Tsien, who did win the Nobel, based on material discovered by Prasher, renewed an earlier invitation to Prasher to work in his lab. A class act, in my book. I didn’t know Tsien, but hearing today that he has passed away saddens me.

  1. Thanks for sharing the link. So heartening to see how honest both men are and credit and “nobel worthiness” is attributed to the other person though they had significant contributions on their own.
