Dr. Clare Waterman is a cell biologist who has made seminal contributions to understanding the role of the cytoskeleton in cell migration. Cell migration is critical to development, immune response, and tissue maintenance, and is compromised in disease and metastatic cancer. Dr. Waterman pioneered the invention and application of novel quantitative and super-resolution light microscopy methods. She utilized these tools to reveal the architectural blueprint and dynamics of protein-based nano-machines that self-assemble in cells to generate, organize, and transmit the forces that drive cell movement, and she defined molecular pathways governing the orchestration of these protein machines in space and time. Dr. Waterman received the Sackler International Prize in Biophysics, the NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, and the Arthur S. Flemming Award for Public Service. She currently serves on the editorial boards of eLife, Current Biology, and Journal of Microscopy.
