Elson, Elliot L.教授,现为圣路易斯华盛顿大学生物化学和分子生物物理学系退休名誉教授,BEBC名誉教授。他早年与康奈尔大学物理系的Watt Webb合作,率先开发了荧光相关光谱学和荧光漂白恢复技术,还开发了重复压力微扰动力学方法。1979年,他转入圣路易斯华盛顿大学医学院生物化学系(现为生物化学和分子生物物理学系),主要进行细胞表面蛋白质的运动和分布、细胞运动以及决定细胞形状的力等方面的研究。


此外,Elson教授在20世纪70年代开创了第一台原子力显微镜,这台被称为“cell-poker”的仪器对细胞进行了第一次纳米压痕实验。第一个人工心脏组织也是在他的实验室里开发出来的。今后他将继续为BEBC的学生、博士后和教师提供指导、开展合作,这也真正体现了BEBC的创新、合作和影响的精神。

美国国家科学院成立于1863年,是一家私人的、非营利性质的组织。它通过评选院士成员来表彰他们的科学成就,并与美国国家工程院和美国国家医学院共同致力于为联邦政府和其他组织提供科学、工程和医药领域的咨询和建议。


Recently, the National Academy of Sciences announced the election of 120 new members in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. Those elected bring the total number of active members to 2,461. Congratulations to Professor Elliot Elson, BEBC honorary professor, on his election to the National Academy of Science!


Prof. Elson is alumni endowed professor emeritus, department of biochemistry and molecular biophysics, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, BEBC honorary professor. He pioneered the development of fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and fluorescence photobleaching recovery (FRAP) in collaboration with Watt Webb of the Cornell Physics Department, and also developed the repetitive pressure perturbation kinetics method. In 1979 he moved to the Department of Biological Chemistry (now the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics) at Washington University School of Medicine, where he has studies the movement and distribution of cell surface proteins, cell motility, and the forces which determine the shapes of cells.


In addition to these accomplishments, Prof. Elson has pioneered the first atomic force microscope instrument in the 1970s, an instrument called the “cell-poker” that was used to perform the first nanoindentation experiments on cells. The first artificial heart tissue was developed in his lab. He continues to serve as mentor and collaborator to many BEBC students, post-docs, and faculty members, and truly embodies BEBC’s spirit of innovation, collaboration, and impact.


The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit institution that was established in 1863. It recognizes achievement in science by election to membership, and-with the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Medicine-provides science, engineering, and health policy advice to the federal government and other organizations.
