The Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center (GLBC) of Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a premier research center 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.
The center is co-directed by Drs. Julio Aguirre-Ghiso, Vladislav Verkhusha, and David Entenberg. Co-directors Emeritus are Drs. John Condeelis and Robert Singer. The GLBC was established through the generosity of the Gruss Lipper Family Foundation.
