Awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2008 for his introduction of green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a biological marker, Professor Martin Chalfie has been a member of the Columbia faculty since 1982. The protein GFP has become a fundamental tool of cell biology, developmental biology, genetics and neurobiology, and has been used to study basic biological principles and investigate disease processes in model organisms. Chalfie has served as a gifted mentor to a generation of undergraduate and graduate students, and played a crucial role in strengthening the Department of Biological Sciences as its chair from 2007 to 2010.
