Abstract

JUDIE RHODIN* Tampa, Florida Johannes (John) Arne Gosta Rhodin, M.D., Ph.D., a retired Professor Emeritus and former Chairman of the Department of Anatomy at the University of South Florida Medical School, died Friday, December 10, 2004, of cancer-related illness. He was 82. An internationally recognized research scientist and pioneer in electron microscopy, Rhodin focused most recently on the etiology and histology of Alzheimer’s disease. He also made extraordinary contributions to the education of medical students and his influence on their lives is lasting. He estimated recently that he had taught 5,000 future doctors in the course of his career. Born in Lund, Sweden, in 1922, Rhodin graduated from the College in Gothenburg and received his M.D. degree from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. After serving in the Swedish Army, then practicing as a general surgeon for several years, he returned to Karolinska to pursue a Ph.D. in Anatomy. When his thesis was published in 1954 on the ultrastructure of the kidney, Rhodin said, ‘‘the world opened up for me.’’ This publication, using the electron microscope, was the first complete report on the fine structure of any organ.
