The wayward Hawaiian boy returns home

, : The wayward Hawaiian boy returns home. Annual Review of Phytopathology 53: 1-17

This chapter represents a travelog of my life and career and the philosophical points I acquired along the way. I was born on a sugar plantation on the island of Hawaii and early on had a stuttering problem. I attended the Kamehameha Schools and received my BS and MS degrees from the University of Hawaii and my Ph.D. from the University of California at Davis. I link my life and career to various principles and events, some of which are: the importance of positioning oneself; going for the big enchilada; music, the international language; the red zone of biotechnology; the human side of biotechnology; the transgenic papaya story; and my leadership time at USDA in Hawaii. The guiding light throughout my career were the words from Drs. Eduardo Trujillo and Robert Shepherd, respectively, "Dennis, don't just be a test tube scientist, do something to help people" and "Now tell me, what have you really accomplished?"

Comparison with other age groups. We have performed 284 OLT and from 1990 we accept donors older than 50 years. We analyzed 100 consecutive OLT from 1990 in relation to donor age and we divided them in three groups: A) 10 liver transplants with donors < 16 years old; B) 76 live...

To study the in vitro susceptibility of A. flavus to polyenes and triazoles, we obtained clinical isolates from the United States, South Africa and India. Using broth microdilution (NCCLS M38-P), we investigated the in vitro susceptibility of 53 c...

Miller K.F.; Baillargeon R., 1990: Length and distance do preschoolers think that occlusion brings things together?. Preschoolers often assert that objects become closer together when part of the distance between them is occluded (occlusion = nearer). Piaget argued that this is due to young children's use of a topological spatial representation. Three studi...
