Chambers, Robert


Born Oct. 23, 1881, in Erzurum, Turkey; died July 22, 1957. American cytologist.

Chambers was appointed a professor at the Medical College of Cornell University in New York City in 1923 and was also a professor at New York University from 1928 to 1948. He was one of the first to work out the techniques of cell microdissection, or mi-crurgy. With the aid of a micromanipulator of his own design and a hydrostatically operated micropipette, Chambers and his co-workers were able to examine both isolated cells and cells in tissues, their research focusing on the physiochemical properties of cells.
