Kurt Schaffner turned 80 this year. This perspective highlights his contributions to the research on the plant photoreceptor phytochrome, as many of the findings on structure and function of this molecule are tightly linked to the Max-Planck-Institute for Radiation Chemistry, where he was effective as Max-Planck director for more than twenty years.
