Erik W. Dent

Research Description:

I work in Dr. Dent's lab looking at different cytoskeletal proteins and their effect on neuronal development.  In particular, I study CIP4 a protein that is known to inhibit neuronal outgrowth. Currently, I use techniques such as in utero electroporation to study neuronal migration in vivo but I also use primary dissociated neuronal cultures to investigate CIP4 and its role in cortical migration and development.
