Cooper PhD Projects
Project 1: Does Neogenin and its ligands, netrin and RGMa, control neural stem cell function in induced pluripotent stem cells and the developing mouse cortex?
Project 2: Identifying the molecular mechanism through which Neogenin controls the actin cytoskeleton in migrating neurons and axons.
Project 3: Understanding the role of autism genes in cortical development
Project 4: Identifying signaling pathways contributing to ependymal cell differentiation and hydrocephalus.
Project 5: Investigating signaling pathways that control the actin cytoskeleton in mammalian dendrite morphogenesis and synaptogenesis.
