Dear Society Members,
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news with you that Teratology Society Past President Ed Carney passed away suddenly last night after collapsing while out jogging.
It is hard to express the sadness I feel. Ed was an excellent scientist with a great spirit and was very beloved by all of us who knew him. He was very dedicated to Teratology and he will be missed.
Our thoughts are with Ed’s family and friends during this difficult time. We will post more details as they become available and will be making plans to honor him formally for his contributions to our Society and the field of teratology.
Please join me in extending our condolences to Ed’s family and friends and in sharing your reflections using the Comment function of this Blog. Please log into BDR Connection in order to post a Comment. We will share these messages with his family.
With great sadness,
Mary Alice Smith
