Meet the 4DCP Scientists

Two senior group leaders and six group leaders will play key roles in shaping the science and intellectual culture of the new research area. They will lead small research teams and collaborate with Janelia’s current research scientists, tool builders, and experts in microscopy, computation and theory to bridge the fields of cell biology and physiology, and address one of biology’s biggest questions: How do cells communicate with one another across scales to create and sustain organisms?
