A true love for science

Toward the end, in 2003, when [the great immunologist Charles Janeway] was struggling with lymphoma, I remember, we still had these conversations. At one point, I went to see him at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He’d been unconscious for a few days. Suddenly, he was sitting up. The very first thing he asked was about some study that was done in immunology: “What do you think of that result?”
