Salome Gluecksohn-Waelsch, a developmental geneticist who fled the Nazis in the 1930s, died earlier this month at the age of 100, reports the New York Times. She studied mammalian development -- particularly the effects of natural mutations in mice and later the inheritance hemoglobin. Gluecksohn-Waelsch received the National Medal of Science in 1993.
