She was Chief of the Section on Organelle Biology in the Cell Biology and Metabolism Branch at the NICHD before becoming Senior Group Leader at Janelia Research Campus, Ashburn, VA in 2016. Dr. Lippincott-Schwartz's research is focused on understanding how intracellular organelles are assembled and inherited, and how proteins move within cells. Her lab uses various fluorescent imaging techniques to visualize and track molecules and organelles at both diffraction-limited and super-resolution scales. Dr. Lippincott-Schwartz has been a Journal of Cell Science Editor since 2000.
