Michel Vervoort (1970-2022)

On Thursday, December 8th, 2022, Michel Vervoort, passed away. Michel was a beloved member of the McDonnell Initiative. He was a Professor in Developmental Genetics at Université Paris Cité, director of the Stem Cells, Development and Evolution team at the Institut Jacques Monod (co-supervised with Eve Gazave), and a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France. Michel’s death leaves our community, as well as the fields of stem cell biology, EvoDevo, and regeneration biology, poorer for his loss.
