Abstract

Torvard C. Laurent (1930-2009) was one of the pioneers of hyaluronan science and in particular of its structural aspects. He was the first who ever established the metrical characteristics of hyaluronan. He determined many of its physicochemical properties and their relationship to the versatile biological functions of this noted molecule. He also contributed to its medical applications. He was a leading personality in science administration and science policy in Sweden and internationally.
