Testimonials for Pioneer Member J. Clark Lagarias

Robert Willows – I first met Clark in 1994, when I was a postdoctoral researcher attending the Gordon Research Conference on Tetrapyrroles. Clark gave a very entertaining and informative talk on phytochrome assembly, and he has been actively involved in most of these biennial conferences. Clark’s enthusiasm and knowledge of many disparate areas of tetrapyrroles synthesis, phytochrome signalling and other topics relevant to plant growth and development processes have inspired many researchers and resulted in many fruitful collaborations. I always enjoy the active discussions with Clark at the GRC conferences and the ICTPPO conferences that we have both chaired.
