Dr. Larry Vardiman, Senior Research Scientist at the Institute for Creation Research, has devoted 30 years to the defense of science that honors the Creator. June 2012 marked the retirement of Dr. Vardiman, who has blessed colleagues, students, and audiences around the world.

During his tenure at ICR, Dr. Vardiman has served as Professor, Department Chair, Director of Research, and even Chief Operating Officer for the Institute. Those who have known and worked with Larry have come to know him as a gifted scientist, a capable leader, a passionate communicator, and a genuine friend.

Highlights of Dr. Vardiman’s research include his work in paleoclimatology, hypercanes, global warming, and director of the eight-year RATE (Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth) research project that settled significant scientific issues related to earth origins. A gifted writer and communicator, Dr. Vardiman has published numerous articles, technical monographs, and books on creation science.
