Memorial service for Talbot Waterman

The Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology will hold a memorial service to commemorate the life of long-time Yale faculty member Talbot H. Waterman, who passed away on Sept. 11 at the age of 96

The service will be held Sunday, Jan. 16, at 2 p.m. in the second-floor Fellows Lounge of Trumbull College, 241 Elm St. (High Street entrance. Note: An elevator is not available.) A reception will follow.

Waterman, professor emeritus of molecular, cellular and developmental biology, served on the Yale faculty from 1946 to 1985, and continued to remain active in his research until his death. Waterman studied the biology of polarized-light perception and its significance to aquatic animals. In 2008 the Oceanography Society honored him with the distinguished Jerlov Award For Advancing Knowledge of the Nature and Consequences of Light in the Ocean.
