In memory of Hermann Bujard (1934–2020)
We were very sad to hear of the passing of Hermann Bujard, one of the preeminent molecular biologists of his era. His groundbreaking research with Manfred Gossen led to the creation of the tetracycline-inducible transactivator, which revolutionized researchers’ ability to tightly control gene expression in eukaryotic cells. Prof. Bujard will also be remembered for his passionate work in developing vaccines to fight malaria. The scientific community will miss him. We send our condolences to his family and friends.
