The developmental biologist Beatrice Mintz passed on Jan 3, 2022 at the age of 100. Blanche Chapel @DukeCellBiology who worked with her, has written this obituary in @dev_journal on the professional career of this extraordinary woman in science.
Kudos to Brian Brooks and his team at @NatEyeInstitute @NIH for establishing iPS-derived retinal pigment epithelium cells from oculocutaneous (OCA1 and OCA2) #albinism patients. Study published in @stemcellreports

I began investigating the DNA regulatory elements of mouse Tyr gene thanks to a paper from Beatrice Mintz’s lab in 1991 that put us in the right track to find out the 5’ boundary element of this locus. Hence, her work was essential for my scientific career.
I am most thankful🐭 https://t.co/TjVV81e3Am
Beatrice Mintz (1921-2022) just passed away. She was a giant of mouse developmental biology and the mentor of outstanding researchers such as Lionel Larue @EuSPCR @institut_curie who informed us and provided this tribute by Jon Chernoff @FoxChaseCancer
We had a fantastic 2021 1-day ESPCR online meeting with 33 great talks lostly from our younger researchers in the field. Some of them are captured in this group picture. Thanks to all speakers and >135 participants who attended online for the entire day. And congratulations Mauro
