Anthony Bretscher is Professor of Cell Biology at Cornell University and a member of the Weill Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology. His laboratory is well known for identifying and characterizing new components of the actin cytoskeleton and elucidating the biological functions of those components in relation to cell polarity and membrane traffic. For this work, his laboratory exploits biochemical, genetic, and cell biological approaches in two model systems, vertebrate epithelial cells and the budding yeast. Dr. Bretscher teaches cell biology to undergraduates at Cornell University.
