Biomedical technologiesIntravital imagingTumor microenvironmentBreast cancerMetastasis

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. read more...

Betty and Sheldon Feinberg Senior Faculty Scholar in Cancer Research

Biomedical technologiesImagingTumor cell imaging

Dr. Segall studies how tumor cells invade tissues and spread through the body. He has developed sophisticated imaging methods for following individual tumor cells moving in living animals. For example, one of his techniques involves a tiny glass window implanted in the skin of a mouse that allows scientists to track individual cancer cells as they spread a tumor site and attack other parts of the body. This technique could one day be used for assessing the effectiveness of specific drugs in preventing cancer from metastasizing. read more...

Single-cell imagingmRNABiophotonics

Dr. Singer is a leader in the field of biophotonics, which enables scientists to observe activities within living cells at the molecular level, and in the study of mRNA, a molecule that controls the expression and positioning of proteins within cells. Dr. Singer, who was called a “pioneer” by Science magazine, leads a robust lab that focuses on how RNA is expressed by the genome and how it travels from the site of its birth to its ultimate location in the cell where it makes proteins. read more...

Craig A. Branch, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Radiology

Associate Professor, Physiology & Biophysics

Director, Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center

Biomedical technologiesMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI)Concussion Brain function

Dr. Branch directs Einstein’s Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center, which supports a wide variety of MRI studies of brain injury and disease, liver disease, cancer and other disorders. Dr. Branch specializes in the use of MRI to study both animal and human diseases. He was also one of the first to use MRI to measure blood flow in the brain and employs the technology to assess brain function and structure in a wide variety of disorders, including stroke, concussion and schizophrenia. read more...
