Alberts was one of Founding Research Director Dr. George Vande Woude’s first recruits to Van Andel Institute in 2000. A dedicated and passionate scientist, Alberts was a lead investigator in the Center for Cancer and Cell Biology who was instrumental in establishing the Institute’s prestige in the world of biomedical research. His research focused on cell motility and mDIA2 regulation. A proud mentor, Alberts served as a Van Andel Institute Graduate School professor and trained several students and postdoctoral scientists who have gone on to successful careers in academia. He was known for his forthright nature, intensity, humor and iconic wardrobe. Whether helping a graduate student consider a new perspective or asking challenging questions of a prominent scientist during a seminar or lecture, Alberts could be counted on for his impassioned commentaries. David Van Andel, Chairman and CEO of Van Andel Institute, remembers Alberts as a significant force in the early days of the Institute and a leader in his field. PHOTO CAPTION “Those of us who knew Art would agree that he was a true original—a passionate, deeply inquisitive soul who was committed to the purity of science,” Van Andel said. “Art’s insight and genuine, uncompromising love for his work was evident in everything he did. His legacy lives on in the work we do today and the many people who were lucky enough to have known him.” Alberts was a devoted and loving husband and father, and is survived by his wife, Lisa and their two children, Corrinne and Isobel. 40 | VAN ANDEL INSTITUTE ANNUAL REPORT 2016
