Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz is a senior group leader at Janelia Research Campus. Her research uses live cell imaging approaches to analyze the spatio-temporal behavior and dynamic interactions of molecules in cells. Lippincott-Schwartz earned a master’s degree in Philip Hanawalt’s lab at Stanford University and a PhD in Douglas Fambrough’s lab at Johns Hopkins University. She did postdoctoral work with Richard Klausner at the National Institutes of Health, where she later became a primary investigator and Chief of the Section on Organelle Biology in the Cell Biology and Metabolism Branch. In 2016, Lippincott-Schwartz moved her lab to Janelia, where she continues to investigate cell biology, but in the context of the brain.
