John M. Opitz is Professor of Medical Genetics in Pediatrics and adjunct Professor of Human Genetics, Pathology, Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Trained by Emil Witschi, Hans Zellweger, and Jacqueline A. Noonan in Iowa City, Klaus Patau and David Smith in Madison, he initially focused his work on the delineation and definition of syndromes, Mendelian and cytogenetic. With Elisabeth G. Kavaeggia in Madison and Philip D. Pallister in Boulder, MT, Dr. Opitz undertook major studies of mental retardation. With the move of Enid F. Gilbert (later Gilbert-Barness) to Madison Dr. Opitz became deeply involved in developmental pathology in humans, an interest continuing to this day, together with a study of the relationship between evolution and development (“everything that develops has evolved”).
