May 28, 2001), also known as American biologist in the field of mammalian developmental genetics, spending most of her career at the Jackson Laboratory in

Bar Harbor, Maine. Russell is most recognized for her ground breaking cells, and germ cells. She also

raised awareness of the benefits of genetically-defined laboratory animals in

biomedical research. Russell was born Elizabeth Buckley Shull born in Ann Arbor, Michigan.[1] She was the eldest child of Margaret Jeffrey

Buckley and Aaron Franklin Shull Ph.D., both of whom were zoologists, and the

niece of George H. Shull, a

prominent geneticist. Elizabeth was fascinated by science and the scientific

approach from an early age, leading her to study zoology at the University of Michigan, from which she graduated in 1933.

After receiving a scholarship from Columbia University and

completing her master's degree in 1934, she went to work at the University of Chicago,

obtaining her Ph.D. in zoology in 1937, and marrying fellow student William L.

Russell the same year.

The couple moved to work at Jackson Memorial Laboratory, however, her

position was unpaid. Russell began studying tumorogenesis in fruitflies (Drosophila melanogaster). She had two publications and

four children between the years 1940 and 1946 (three boys, Richard, John, and

James and a girl, Ellen).[2] The nickname Tibby came from her

husband, because they worked in a laboratory with several other women named

Elizabeth. In 1947 Russell's marriage ended in divorce, but she maintained a

good relationship with her ex-husband. Later that year the Jackson Memorial

Laboratory burnt down, killing the majority of the research animals. Elizabeth

was in charge of obtaining new mice from laboratories around the world.

Russell went on to genetically characterize many laboratory animals

for phenotypes such as physical attributes and disease

susceptibilities, completing a monumental histological study on the effect that the major coat

color mutations of the mouse have on the physical attributes and distribution

of pigment granules in the hair. This analysis is the first attempt to define

each phenotype of the mouse in terms of genetic factors, setting the stage for

virtually all coat-color studies.
