Maurice S. Fox is an American geneticist and molecular biologist, and professor Emeritus of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he served as department chair between 1985 and 1989. His pioneering investigations of bacterial transformation helped illuminate the mechanisms by which donor DNA enters and is integrated into a host cell. His research also contributed to our understanding of mechanisms of DNA mutation, recombination, and mismatch repair more generally. Ancillary activities include his critical role in the establishment of the Council for a Livable World. He was married to photo researcher Sally Fox for over 50 years, has three sons.
