In Memoriam: Dr. Steven Kazianis

Dr.StevenKazianis

Steven Kazianis Ph.D., of Philadelphia, died at 41 on March 10, 2008, of anaplastic astrocytoma cancer. Dr. Kazianis was a leading melanoma cancer scientist and avid nature photographer. Steven was given the nickname "Xiphophorus" because of his love of the species of fish that he spent most of his life researching.

Here is a link to a tribute published in Zebrafish: Nikolas K. Haass. Zebrafish. June 2008, 5(2): 91-92.
