Neuroscience Community Mourns the Loss of Eliot
Stellar.
 
  The neuroscience community is mourning the loss of
Eliot Stellar who passed away last week at the age of 73.
Dr. Stellar died at the Hospital of the University
Pennsylvania following a battle with cancer. Dr. Stellar,
who had been the chairman of the Department of Cell
and Developmental Biology until his death, was a
renowned neuroscientist in the area of motivation and
ingestive behaviors. Dr. Stellar was also the President of
the American Philosophical Society. While the funeral
services are private, a memorial service will be held at
the University of Pennsylvania sometime in November.
The announcement will be posted in this newsletter.
