Abstract

With the passing of Dr. Robert Bittman on the 1st Oct 2014 from cancer, the lipid field lost its most distinguished lipid chemist researcher. Herein, we provide a brief account of Dr. Robert Bittman’s research achievements over a 50 year career. Dr. Robert Bittman’s lasting legacies to the fields of lipid membrane biophysics, cholesterol trafficking and cellular functions of phospholipids and sphingolipids are truly inestimable.
