Bio:
Lee Cohen-Gould has been a Core Director at Weill Cornell Medicine since 1988, when it was dedicated to electron microscopy.  In the intervening years, the Core has expanded to include many many modes of optical microscopy.  Within the Core, her emphasis is on training faculty, post-docs, students and staff in the proper use of our laser scanning confocal microscopes, the core's wide field fluorescence microscopes and transmission electron microscope.  She also provides consultation on sample prep for TEM & SEM and histology samples.

Bio:
The Automated Optical Microscopy service of the Microscopy and Image Analysis Core has an ImageXpress Micro Confocal High-Content Imaging System for microscopy in multi-well plates.  The system has both widefield and confocal modalities and has environmental controls enabling both fixed and live-cell imaging of whole organisms, thick tissues, 3D spheroid assays, and cellular or intracellular events.  This instrument along with our liquid dispensers, plate washer and fully customizable analysis software can be employed to automate many types of fluorescence imaging experiments reducing variability and saving hours of operator time.

Research Area :
Bio:
Our laboratory is primarily involved in the application of synthetic organic chemistry to complex biological problems. Of particular interest are those problems associated with infectious disease and innate immunological deficiency. Most of our research centers on developing novel proof-of-concept treatments for combating Third-World disease such as tuberculosis and malaria. A second aspect of our research focuses on the development of novel techniques and therapies to stimulate the immune system to fight diseases such as cancer and HIV.
