Dr. Alexander Tzagoloff recently retired after more than four fruitful decades of research and teaching in the Department of Biological Sciences. He has been a beloved mentor and professor, and his research has contributed to an understanding of the genetics and biogenesis of mitochondria. Faculty Spotlight talked with Dr. Tzagoloff about the unbearable buzzing of tape recorders, serendipity and life’s path, and his decades-long love affair with mitochondria.
Thanks to a generous gift from Professor Alexander Tzagoloff in memory of Professor Cyrus Levinthal (1922-1990), the Department of Biological Sciences is increasing the travel funds available to each PhD student during their graduate career from $1500 to $2000.
