A chemist building paths to cell biology.

Weibel DB - Mol. Biol. Cell (2013)

Bottom Line: Galileo is reported to have stated, "Measure what is measurable and make measurable what is not so." My group's trajectory in cell biology has closely followed this philosophy, although it took some searching to find this path.

Figure 1: Students and faculty in the 2005 physiology course.

Mentions: Daily interactions with outstanding cell biologists were certainly the highlight of the course; they played a major role in shaping my long-term interests in cell biology. The student body consisted of 25 scientists from diverse scientific, cultural, and professional backgrounds, hailing from graduate programs, postdoctoral positions, and faculty posts at top research institutions around the world (Figure 1). Leaders in cell biology and related fields also visited the course on a weekly basis to lecture and interact with students. My discovery of cell biology was largely a product of input from classmates and course faculty. The course format and time frame made it natural for me to form meaningful relationships and lifelong friendships with brilliant young scientists and faculty.
