I had just heard of Lukas’ passing today after asking a graduate student in his lab of how he is doing. I am so sorry to hear of his passing, his friends and family have my deepest condolences. Lukas taught me everything I knew about Organic chemistry my Freshman year, where I was first introduced to research. To this day, I tell people he is the smartest, most brilliant person I have encountered and had the opportunity to learn from. Watching Lukas’ passion and drive taught me about the diligence it takes to go into research. He always had time to teach me everything I needed to know about Organic chemistry concepts and was always open to teaching me more of his work in cell culture. I wish I could have told Lukas how much I learned from him, and his impact in making me the researcher I am today. I was always excited to see him around the building even after I had left the lab group, where I would wave ecstatically, and he would (classically) say “howdy!”. Beyond Chemistry and his obvious intellect, Lukas was hilarious! He showed me videos of his Karate teacher and would teach me Karate moves by drawing them on a piece of paper – a lesson I had happily stayed longer in the lab for. I will forever appreciate and cherish everything Lukas has taught me.
