Mike Gaze (1925-2012)
Posted by Katherine Brown, on 1 October 2012
We recently learned that Mike Gaze passed away last month. In addition to running a research group working on the development of the visual system in Xenopus and heading up the NIMR‘s Division of Developmental Biology for many years, Mike was Editor of The Journal of Embryology and Experimental Morphology in the ’70s and ’80s, and was deeply involved in re-branding and re-launching JEEM as Development in 1987. He retired from Development the following year, but his support of the journal in its early years is still remembered and appreciated by all at the Company of Biologists.
