Ceremony of the Rebeiz Foundation for Basic Research Lifetime Achievement Award to Professor Bob Buchanan
Bob B. Buchanan was born in Richmond, Virginia, into a family descended from the Indian maiden, Pocahontas, and the Englishman, John Rolfe, who settled in the Virginia Colony in 1607. During World War II, when Bob was five, his family moved to the ancestral farm in Southwest Virginia. There Bob grew up, working on the farm and earning money that helped put him through college. He completed his bachelor's degree at Emory & Henry College, a small liberal arts institution near the farm, and graduated with a double major in biology and chemistry. Bob scientific accomplishments are numerous and will be covered in more details in various testimonial displayed below. Bob has received numerous awards. Some of the most significant are: Election to the National Academy of Sciences (Plant Biology) in 1995. His citation reads: Buchanan is the leading investigator of regulatory mechanisms in photosynthesis, a position he earned by his discovery of the ferredoxin-thioredoxin system that regulates the enzymes of photosynthetic CO2 assimilation. Buchanan and coworkers also discovered the ferredoxin-linked carboxylation enzymes and, more recently, a regulatory role for thioredoxin in the germination of cereal seeds. He is also a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science since 1997 He also received the following awards: The ceremony was concluded with a Champagne toast to Bob. A copy of the mahogany framed certificate of recognition to Bob Buchanan is shown below Tino started by acknowledging the following members of the Board Directors of RFFBR who by casting their vote have chosen Bob Buchanan as the recipient of the 2011 Rebeiz Foundation Life Time Achievement Award. Then Tino continued, we are gathered here tonight to honor the achievements of Bob Buchanan, an international scientist who made significant contributions to understanding the Regulation of Photosynthesis. By recognizing the achievements of Bob Buchanan, we hope to encourage young scientists to build on Bob's work in inventing the future. Govindjee presented a vivatious Power Point presentation about Bob.

The next testimonial about Bob will be given by Archie Portis who will read a testimonial sent to us by Peter Schurman, Professor Emeritus at the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland and a collaborator of Bob. Peter is Professor Emeritus at the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland and a collaborator of Bob. Bob Buchanan fully deserves this prestigious award for his many important scientific achievements in the field of bacterial and chloroplast metabolism and also for his effort to pass on his knowledge to the many thousands of students that followed his lectures. As a postdoc I had the opportunity to work with Bob and to get to know him as an enthusiastic researcher with a broad interest, profound knowledge and an excellent memory. I have experienced Bob as a very curious person, open to new ideas, and new projects. He also has a very strong will to overcome difficulties in research as well as in personal matters. Since my days in Berkeley a long lasting friendship has kept us in contact, scientifically and personally which I appreciate very much. I am really pleased that Bob receives this award from the Rebeiz Foundation today and I cordially congratulate him. I was delighted to learn that the Rebeiz Foundation is recognizing and honoring Bob Buchanan this year. His pioneering work establishing the fundamental role of thioredoxin in the light/dark regulation of photosynthetic CO 2 fixation was a signature milestone in photosynthesis research. His subsequent work elucidating several roles of thioredoxin in nutrition, food quality and cereal yield provides compelling examples of Bob's lateral thinking. Extending his thioredoxin research in these new and important directions, far outside the original goal, superbly illustrates Bob's insightful imagination and creativity. Bob, please accept my warmest congratulations in receiving the Rebeiz Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award. I consider Professor Bob Buchanan to be an absolutely outstanding scientist. I believe that the essential elements of his success are an understanding of plant metabolism that is quite exceptional in that it combines depth with breadth, a technical competence, an incredebly sharp perception of what are the next most important questions to be asked and unflagging industry and enthusiasm. His contributions to our present understanding of the activation by light of the Benson-Calvin cycle is quite outstanding. Bob Buchanan is respected and admired throughout the world of plant biochemistry. He is always straight in business and I must say that his admirable personal qualities make him unique" . Now it is time to present Bob with the Foundation Recognition Certificate and an envelope containing an additional Award.
