Remembering Inge Grundke-Iqbal, Ph.D.
On October 18, 2012, we gathered from all corners of the world to pay respect to our friend and colleague Dr. Khalid Iqbal, Inge’s husband and friend, his children Mala and Ravi, and the extended Iqbal family of great people and great scientists. We gathered to admire the achievements of the Dr. Inge Grundke-Iqbal who has passed away in September. Inge has inspired many in her discoveries and wonderful personality.

An assay summarizing her work written by her close colleagues, fortunate to earn her mentorship, poems and eulogies follow below.
