Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center

Overview

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.

Mechanisms of Resistance to Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Breast Cancer

An editorial highlights research by Drs. Maja Oktay, George Karagiannis, and John Condeelis on the mechanism by which some breast cancer tumor cells resist chemotherapy and go on to metastasize. Dr. Oktay is professor of pathology; Dr. Condeelis is the Judith & Burton P. Resnick Chair in Translational Research and professor and co-chair of anatomy and structural biology; Dr. Karagiannis is a postdoctoral fellow

Chemotherapy before breast cancer surgery might fuel metastasis

STAT interviews John Condeelis, Ph.D., about his role in a recent study that linked preoperative chemotherapy with activating the microenvironment of metastasis in breast cancer. Dr. Condeelis is professor and co-chair of anatomy and structural biology and co-director of the Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center, and the Judith and Burton P. Resnick Chair in Translational Research at Einstein.
