Scott was a man of profound decency, kindness, generosity, and uncompromising integrity. He was a brilliant scientist and physician, a humble and modest leader, and a role model for everyone. In the many years that we were colleagues at Columbia, he was a great friend and colleague, and someone to whom I turned often for advice and counsel. I will miss him greatly. His memory will be a blessing to all who knew him.
