First of all, I would like to thank Elizabeth Johnson, Chairperson, CARIG Symposium Committee, and the CARIG Steering Committee members for their kind invitation to deliver the 2008 James Allen Olson Memorial Lecture. It is a great privilege and honor to be asked to present this lecture. When Liz asked me if I would accept the invitation, I replied, “How can Irefuse an invitation to speak in memory of James Olson, whom I was associated with for over twenty years?” Indeed, it was James Allen Olson who brought me to this country from India in 1980. During these twenty years, I learned a lot from this great scholar, an authority on retinoids and carotenoids. What impressed me most was his vast knowledge and incredible memory. I miss him very much.
