Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology


The Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology is committed to graduate education. This small booklet describes the research activities and opportunities in our department for visitors and friends, but particularly for students. 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. In the following pages, each investigator describes current projects in their laboratory and provide a list of relevant references for ongoing research. 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.

Complementing a series of departmental seminars, where eminent visitors present reports of their work, are Work in Progress seminars where graduate and postdoctoral students present their newest results. There are also regular weekly meetings of the students and faculty in most laboratories and a graduate and postdoctoral student group that get together frequently to discuss their mutual concerns about science, course work, and instrumentation. In addition to the Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology, there are nine additional basic science departments at Einstein, with seminars, courses, and equipment shared and available to all.

The faculty has a record of success in research and graduate and postgraduate training in cell, molecular and cancer biology, particularly relating to cell membranes, RNA trafficking, nuclear organization, the cytoskeleton and cell motility. They are interested in being mentors for new graduate students who want to develop challenging research and academic careers. If you are interested in joining us as a graduate student, you will find the details of our program in the booklet. Our program is carefully designed, with unique features, to facilitate ease of entry into the research laboratory. We believe that you will find our program exciting, different, and rewarding. After looking at the descriptions here, if you have any questions, please call or drop by to talk to any member of the department.
