Pioneering Imaging Scientist announced as recipient of Award for Outstanding Contributions to Biomolecular Technologies


The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) has announced Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz as the next recipient of the ABRF Award, which recognizes Outstanding Contributions to Biomolecular Technologies.

Dr Lippincott-Schwartz is Senior Group Leader at the HHMI Janelia Research Campus, and has spent most of her career as a cell biologist devising live cell imaging techniques for studying how cells are organised and dynamically function. She was awarded the RMS Honorary Fellowship in 2014, and also won the Society’s prestigious Pearse Prize in 2010.

Most recently, she has been studying how organelles communicate with each other through inter-organelle contacts and the role this plays in maintaining cell homeostasis.
