Research Description:

My research interests involve the characterization of protease activities targeted by growth cone invadosomes of developing axons.  In my research I hope to identify the transmembrane and secreted matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) associated with developing axons, how MMPs are regulated, their proteolytic targets and roles of MMPs in axon extension and guidance during neural development.
