Dr Jean-Michel Cioni

Interests

The goal of my research is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying axon growth and maintenance. Basic knowledge in this area is essential for understanding neurodevelopmental disorders. I use a multidisciplinary experimental approach that involves in vivo gene transfer, biochemistry and in vivo/in vitro time-lapse imaging of live axons.
