- Lubert Stryer
Lubert Stryer is the Mrs. George A. Winzer Professor of Cell Biology, Emeritus at the
Stanford University School of Medicine. He was a Helen Hay Whitney Research Fellow from 1961 to 1964 before initiating his own research program at Stanford. Following a move to Yale in 1969, he returned to Stanford in September 1976 as the Winzer Professor and is a Professor of Neurobiology (at Stanford) since September 1993. Dr. Stryer received his B.S. from the University of Chicagoand his M.D. from Harvard Medical School.
As part of his research, Dr. Stryer discovered the light-triggered amplification cycle in vision and developed new
fluorescencetechniques for studying biomolecules and cells.
His laboratory's major interest is in the molecular basis of
signal transductionby retinal rod cells using biochemical, biophysical, molecular genetic and electrophysicological approaches to elucidate the molecular basis of visual excitation and adaptation. Current research in his laboratory is focused on the feedback role of calciumion in recovery and adaptation. The Stryer group cloned and expressed recoverinand neurocalcin, two new calcium-sensors in the retina and brain. A related interest is the molecular mechanism of calcium spiking.
Dr. Stryer is the author of Biochemistry, a widely-used textbook published by
WH Freemanwhich is now in its sixth edition (ISBN 0-7167-8724-5). In the latest two editions, Stryer is joined by Jeremy M. Berg (Johns Hopkins School of Medicine) and John L. Tymoczko (Carleton College)
