Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Gruss-Lipper Biophotonics Center and Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology, NY, USA

The Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center (GLBC) of Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University is a premier research facility dedicated to advanced biomedical research. Located at the Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus, the center mandates are to: study and develop novel microscopy techniques that answer fundamental biological questions leading to cures for biomedical problems; make advanced and novel microscopy technologies, methods and reagents available to the research community; and support the education and training of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students in advanced biophotonics techniques.

Codirected by Drs. John Condeelis and Robert Singer, the GLBC was established through the generosity of the Gruss Lipper Family Foundation.

The Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology is committed to graduate education. We have a group of outstanding faculty members who have exciting programs and world class laboratories with a good mix of postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, research associates and visitors. The department has many special features that make this a stimulating place in which to work, including an open door policy which encourages the members of the various laboratories to interact and share knowledge, techniques and equipment. State of the art facilities in light and electron microscopy, genomics, proteomics and cell and animal models development are available to provide investigators with the ability to perform sophisticated analyses of cell structure and function both in vitro and in vivo.


  • Modern Fluorescent Proteins and their Biological Applications

    Here we present two review articles on fluorescent proteins and their biological applications. These first article reviews our current knowledge of blue, green, and red chromophore formation in permanently emitting FPs, photoactivatable FPs, and fluorescent timers. The second article focuses on novel monomeric RFPs and their application for studying gene expression, nuclear localization, and dynamics using advanced imaging.
