This web community has been created in memory of John Chiko.

John was an energizing leader, a great academic and an inspiration to everyone who knew him. He had a daring and simultaneously very positive approach to life. His eclectic interests and wide-ranging curiosity provided fertile ground for the growth of his quick wit and humorous anecdotes.

Bob Kloess, a friend of John's, captured John's outlook on life quite well in the following quote read at his funeral. I hope it will inspire you help in our fight against this devastating disease known as schizophrenia; we must end the suffering through intense and daring research into treatment and cures.

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take up ranks with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, for they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat"
- Theodore Roosevelt.
