On October 11, the beloved scientist and teacher, Russell F. Doolittle, Emeritus Professor of Molecular Biology, passed away. Doolittle’s work most famously explored the evolution of blood clotting and we all know him for his crystallography work the fibrinogen molecule. An obituary from Mattia Rocco, John Weisel and Moniek de Maat was published in the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jth.14681
