I am a PhD candidate since May-2015 in our research group. My research deals with signalling cascades that are important during neuronal development. I employ biochemistry approaches and use primary hippocampal cultures from both wild type and genetically modified mice to analyse neuronal morphology and protein biochemistry. In my current project, I study the role of Ndr2 kinase and how integrin receptors and cytoskeleton elements involve in this cascade during neuritogenesis.
