To Dr. John J. Doyle, 1944-1999, one of the pioneering scientists in the CGIAR System who worked on the application of molecular biology to livestock diseases at ILRAD (now ILRI.) in Africa for 20 years. Jack was, as his colleagues at ILRI said, a man dedicated to a single idea that science could solve human problems, and he had the courage to go after that no matter what.
