The award recognizes and honors scientists at all stages of their careers who have made substantial advances in understanding biological chemistry using innovative physical approaches.
Anne’s work beautifully embodies the mission of this award. She uses innovative light and electron optical imaging techniques to visualize membrane nanodomains, lipid rafts, and caveolae as platforms for cell signaling in health and disease. She studies how toxins enter cells, how mutations in caveolins cause pulmonary arterial hypertension and breast cancer, and how lipid rafts contribute to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Anne is the Associate Director of the Center for Membrane and Cell Physiology.
