Testimonials for Pioneer Member Alessandro Vitale

Maarten and Janet Chrispeels – Sandro was one of my star postdocs and has remained a true friend all these years.

Lorenzo Frigerio – Sandro is an outstanding researcher and educator and an exceptional supervisor. Working as a postdoc in Sandro’s lab was the most fun and productive time I have had in a lab. Sandro has very high standards, but has a lovely, understated way of empowering his collaborators to achieve them. His style is to assume you know as much as he does and treat you as a peer, being patient and supportive when things go wrong and making it look like it’s all your doing when things go well. Sandro remains one of my role models, I and believe he fully deserves the accolade of a Pioneer of ASPB.
