Watt Webb Death – Obituary | Watt W. Webb Dead – Passed Away

Watt Webb Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Watt Webb.

Watt W Webb, what a legacy and impact to how we image biology with multiphoton microscopy and correlation spectroscopy! He is 2x my academic grandfather! I still remember my first experiments in the Maiti lab at TIFR, learning multiphoton microscopy and FCS!

It is with great sadness to hear the news that Watt Webb has passed away. He left a legacy of incredible discoveries and a long list of trainees who have gone on to successful careers.

Watt Webb inspired so many people, including me. Our offices are still full of his collection of scientific books on various fields ranging from pure math/physics to handbooks of biology and chemistry and they all have his signatures.

A giant has fallen. Papers from Watt Webb were among the firsts I’ve ever read, they set the tone to what we aspired to do in 3D and multiphoton microscopy. His legacy remains in generations of scientists inspired by his work

Watt Webb was one of the giants, with contributions like MRI, FCS, MultiPhoton, single molecule localization.. Even phase-separated GPMVs came from his lab! As @VirAssemblyLab says, there is not a single day we don’t use one of the methods he developed..

A sad day for membrane afficionados. I met Watt W. Webb at Cornell in 2008. Super nervous to meet such a giant but there was no need; he was, of course, incredibly knowledgeable but also funny and kind.

Very sad to hear the news that Watt Webb, biological imaging techniques pioneer, passed away. His contributions to multiphoton spectroscopy, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and even DNA sequencing were transformative.

One of the reasons that I was excited about studying at Cornell was Watt Webb and the femtosecond pulse laser technology that made deep, high resolution optical imaging of live tissue possible.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
