Cell biologist Gerd Maul has died, reports The Scientist. He was 70. Maul was a "multi-faceted researcher" and artist, The Scientist says, writing that he started out as an electron microscopy expert, then discovered the "nuclear dots" structures, and then turned his attention to studying vaccines. In addition, The Scientist says Maul was "an admired sculptor and artist who regularly showed at prestigious galleries in Philadelphia and beyond," and adds that he also worked with other media. "He had an incredible enthusiasm for his science, and a way of looking at things that other people didn't see," says Louise Showe, a colleague of Maul's at the Wistar Institute.
