Passing of Dr. Tamio Yamakawa

October 11, 2018
Roger Laine has some very sad news for the Society membership, which is that Dr. Tamio Yamakawa passed away earlier this week. 
As many of you are well aware, Dr. Yamakawa was 96 and widely respected as the godfather of carbohydrate biochemistry in Japan.
Please take a moment to remember this marvelous man and his highly successful career, as beautifully depicted in the attached 2009 article from J. Biochem.
The SFG sends deep condolences to Dr. Yamakawa’s family.
