Dr. Condeelis is a pioneer in developing microscope techniques for use in “intravital imaging” – observing the behavior of cells in living animals. His work has led to a clinical test of biopsy tissue to determine whether a woman’s breast cancer will spread (metastasize), which could help determine treatment. Because of the test’s success, Dr. Condeelis and colleagues have licensed the patent rights to a biotech firm, which is developing the tissue test into a commercial product.
A fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Dr. Condeelis is the recipient of the Allen Foundation Scholar Award and the Hirschl Career Scientist Award. He has served on numerous study sections of the National Institutes of Health and the American Cancer Society, as a consultant to the National Cancer Institute, and on the editorial boards of several prominent journals, including the Journal of Cell Biology.
