The remarkable work of a Nobel laureate saw breakthroughs in chemistry, biochemistry, and genetics. Har Gobind Khorana, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Biology and Chemistry emeritus, died on 9 November 2011. One of us (M.C.), on the first day as a young postdoctoral fellow, greeted him as “Dr. Khorana.” He responded, “Everyone calls me Gobind and so should you.” And so it was for all those fortunate enough to have worked with him.
