Interests

Neurons are one of the most polarized cells in our body, with their axonal processes sometimes extending distances of more than 1,000-fold the diameter of their cell body. I am interested to study how proteins and organelles are delivered to axons by using live epifluorescence imaging in explanted tibial nerves.
