Derek Bendall (1930–2014)
Derek Bendall carried out pioneering work on photosynthetic electron transport, particularly on protein–protein interactions, cytochromes, and cyclic electron transport, as well as on other topics including the biochemistry of tea. He was a keen musician and a gifted gardener, a devoted family man, and a delightful colleague and friend. The bioenergetics community, especially those working on photosynthesis, will miss him sorely.
