On Friday, October 19th, 2018, a symposium in remembrance of Dr. John Majors was held in Moore Auditorium on the medical campus of Washington University. Many colleagues, friends and family members from the university community, as well as from across the country, were in attendance. Drs. Peter Burgers, Mark Johnston, Charlie Rice, and Harold Varmus all gave heartfelt talks about John’s influence in biophysics as well as speaking about the different hobbies (i.e., backpacking and golf) and interests John had outside of the lab.
