Abstract

With the death of Hermann Esterbauer on January 7, 1997, the Karl-Franzens University of Graz, Austria, lost one of its best known scientists and an outstanding teacher, and our journal, Chemistry and Physics of Lipids , lost a new and dynamic member of its Editorial Advisory Board. Professor Esterbauer died at the height of a scientific career which had brought him worldwide respect and recognition. His career at the University of Graz began in 1963 in the Department of Physical Chemistry headed by the famous X-ray crystallographer, Otto Kratky. However, Dr Esterbauer developed an early interest in the chemistry and analysis of lipids and in 1968 he joined the newly established Department of Biochemistry under its first chairman, Erwin Schauenstein. After postdoctoral fellowships in the United States at the Universities of Pittsburgh and Michigan, he returned to Graz and was appointed Professor in 1974. Hermann Esterbauer made early significant contributions to the chemistry of lipid peroxidation and the analysis of its products, including the biologically active hydroxyaldehydes such as 4-hydroxyhexenal and 4-hydroxynonenal. He and his colleagues thus had a major impact on the general acceptance of the pathophysiological importance of oxidative stress and the role of free radical-induced
