Ralph Steinman (1943 – 2011)

Very sad story about a long-time physician and researcher here at Rockefeller University who received a Nobel Prize for his work on immunology 4 days after he passed away from pancreatic cancer, a disease he fought using his own treatment ideas. He was a major figure at the University and everyone here is devastated by the loss especially given the timing.
