After completing postdoctoral training with Dr. David D. Sabatini, Dr. Colman became an Assistant Professor of Cell Biology at NYU School of Medicine. In 1987, he joined the faculty of The Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons as an Associate Professor of Cell Biology, where he received several prestigious awards, including an Irma T.
