Erik Lee Snapp


My research focuses on developing and using fluorescent probes to study quality control and stress in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of living cells. I started in science as an undergraduate working at Biogen. I went to graduate school at Oregon Health Sciences University to study the cell biology of Leishmania parasites in the lab of Dr. Scott Landfear. For my postdoc, I went to the National institutes of Health and studied with Dr. Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz and studied ER morphology and function. From 2004-2016, I was a professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. My lab developed the first live cell assay to detect the unfolded protein burden in the ER, as well as a palette of fluorescent proteins that properly fold in non-cytoplasmic environments. Since May 2016, I have continued my work on fluorescent proteins and serve as the Director of Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Programs at Janelia Research Campus of HHMI in Ashburn, VA.
