It is my sad duty to inform the glycobiology community of the recent passing of Professor Irwin Goldstein. Dr. Goldstein was a longtime member of the Society for Glycobiology, as well as its predecessor, the Society for Complex Carbohydrates. One of Dr. Goldstein’s students, David Roberts (NIH/NCI) kindly forwarded this information and asked me to disseminate it together with links you can cut and paste to read memorials from Dr. Goldstein’s family and from the University of Michigan. On behalf of the Society, I send our deepest sympathies to Dr. Goldstein’s family, friends, and colleagues; he will be dearly missed.
