Catherine E. Krull (1955 - 2017)

The Society for Developmental biology community mourns the loss of former board member Catherine E. Krull who passed away February 28, 2017 after a long illness. Krull, an associate professor at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, studied motor axon pathfinding in the chick hindlimb and perfected in ovo electroporation techniques in the chick. As a postdoc, Krull identified Eph signaling as an inhibitor of neural crest cell migration. She served as both the Junior Faculty Representative (2002-2004) and Midwest Representative (2006-2008) on the SDB Board of Directors, taught at the LASDB short course in Argentina, and was a fixture at the Marine Biological Laboratory Embyrology Course for years. A tribute to Cathy Krull will be published in an upcoming issue of Developmental Biology.
