Abstract: Prof. Dr. José R. Giglio (1934 e 2014) made a highly significant contribution to the field of Toxinology. During 48 years devoted to research and teaching Prof Giglio published more than 160 articles, with more than 4400 citations, in international journals, trained a vast amount of graduate and undergraduate students, and developed an international network of collaborators. Throughout these years, he worked with dedication and deep commitment to science, leaving an immortalized legacy. During his professional career he contributed mostly in the isolation, and biochemical and functional characterization of various protein toxins derived from animal venoms such as snakes, scorpions and spiders, in addition to his studies searching for alternative therapies for poisoning. Even after his departure, his presence and influence remains among his former students and in the outstanding legacy of his scientific contributions.
