Please leave your memories of James and messages for the family
in the comments section below.
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
With profound sadness, we share with you the news that James Stanley Catterall has passed away. He was at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center surrounded by his wife Rebecca and all of his children. He had the best care and strong advocacy from his family, after suffering a heart attack and massive stroke compounded by multiple complications. He passed at 4pm on Wednesday, August 23.
The loss of our beloved colleague and friend leaves us shocked. James channeled his wonder about the world through his work, bestowing many gifts to innumerable people over the course of four decades. His thinking, writing, profound kindness, and willingness to walk into the unknown, asking questions and curious about the answers, shaped many of our own perceptions and approaches, not only to research, but to life.
In the coming weeks, we will continue to work on current projects and put together the pieces that we need to carry on his legacy. For now, we mourn the man.
Rest in peace, James.
