Dan Tawfik suddenly left us on 4 May, 2021. His scientific intuition led him to articulate, and solve, many key questions related to protein chemistry and molecular evolution. Although science, particularly for his students, postdoctoral fellows and colleagues, is dimmer after his loss, his legacy will persist.
