Abstract

One of the leading experts in the field of Neuroendocrinology and Neuroimmunmodulation, Samuel Mac Donald McCann, known by all his friends as 'Don', passed away in 2007. This article pays tribute to his outstanding scientific contribution and a glimpse on his fascinating personality. A member of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States and pioneer in the field of neuroendocrine regulation, he identified numerous hormones and peptides and set the stage for basic concepts in physiology and clinical medicine.
