ABSTRACT Professor Andrzej Krzysztof Tarkowski passed away last September (2016) at the age of 83. His findings, have become indispensable tools for immunological, genetic, and oncological studies, as well as for generating transgenic animals which are instrumental for studying gene function in living animals.
