Developing neurons acquire a complex, polarized morphology, which underlies their specialized physiology and is essential to the formation and functional connectivity of the nervous system. This entails concerted insertion of membrane material to fuel plasma membrane expansion and localized cytoskeletal reorganization to directionally extend the plasma membrane. Our goal is to define mechanisms by which distinct neuronal guidance cues influence the membrane trafficking and cytoskeletal machineries that steer morphogenesis and consequently, connectivity and behavior.  We do this in a supportive, engaging, and fun environment of scientific discovery and training.
