Kronos Science Laboratories (KSL) Has Lost a Great Leader and a Good Friend, Dr. Chris Heward
Date:2/9/2009

PHOENIX, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kronos Science Laboratories (KSL) has lost a great leader and a good friend. Christopher B. Heward, Ph.D. died on January 10, 2009 after a stormy three month battle with an aggressive cancer of the esophagus. Dr. Heward was a dedicated gerontologist and a superb laboratory scientist. He completed a BA at the University of Arizona with dual majors in Chemistry and Psychology in 1972, and then stayed on an additional year to earn a BS in Biology. Chris went on to graduate school at the same institution and was awarded an MS in Anatomy in 1977 and a Ph.D. in Biology in 1981, with his thesis work on the endocrine actions of melatonin and related peptides.

Dr. Heward's primary responsibility with KSL was to provide scientific and technical leadership for the laboratory activities. Chris brought to all his endeavors an astounding keenness of intellect and a broad-ranging interest in how things work. He was a consummate skeptic, with an incredibly sensitive nose for B.S. Chris loved a good debate; controversy was his metier. His watchword was, "Show me the data," which he would then mercilessly dissect. There was no possibility of slipping shoddy work or faulty thinking past Dr. Chris Heward. Yet, he was also an enthusiast. His excitement and commitment were infectious, consistently motivating those he supervised as well as his peers and collaborators to push harder and try new approaches.

No description of Chris would be complete without mention that, as busy as he was, he was also a loving husband and good friend to his wife Pam and the proud active father of five children, an adult son and daughter, a second daughter in college, and two younger boys, one in high school and the other in middle-school. Chris was never more himself than when at home relaxing with family and friends. He truly knew how to have a good time.

Mr. Jonathan Thatcher, CEO of KSL stated, "Chris led a busy, productive, and happy life. As we celebrate Chris' life, we will continue his legacy. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Chris Heward Memorial Fund at Kronos Longevity Research Institute. Contributions will continue Dr. Heward's work in diseases prevention and early detection research. For donation online visit www.kronosinstitute.org and note Chris Heward Memorial Fund in the comments or call (866) 840-1117.
