A Special Construction for a Special Deconstructor

by George Barany and Charles Deber

The release of this "mid-week level" puzzle was timed to coincide with the 23rd American Peptide Symposium, at which 67-Across (middle of photo, flanked by the two constructors) received the 2013 7-Down. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about the honoree, and about the puzzle itself, by clicking here for our "midrash."
