This Cornell Research story focuses on Anthony P. Bretscher, professor of molecular biology and genetics in the College of Arts & Sciences and a member of the Weill Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology.

Bretscher's research, funded in part by funding from the National Institutes of Health, works to understand how cells organize their plasma membrane—morphology and abundance of specific proteins— and how molecular motors pick up, transport and deliver different specific cargos.
