"Kenneth DeOme was a pioneer and giant in the area of mammary gland biology, especially premalignant disease. As a scientist, he was innovative and persevering. He created important methodology that is still used today for studying mammary gland development and premalignant progression. As a mentor, he was always available to his students and encouraged the pursuit of new ideas and approaches. As an international leader he led the US efforts to repair the European mammary research infrastructure following the war. This effort ultimately led to formation of the International Association for Breast Cancer Research. He was a man of integrity and compassion. We, his students, stand on his shoulders in advancing the science and lessons he taught us."
