Kimberly Cooper, PhD

Associate Professor, Division of Biological Sciences
UC San Diego

Kimberly Cooper uses an unusual model system, the bipedal, three-toed jerboa, to understand how evolution has shaped limb form and function. Applying classical embryology, cell biology, quantitative microscopy, high-throughput sequence analysis, and mouse genetics in an integrative approach, the Cooper Lab seeks to understand these developmental mechanisms at the tissue and genome level, to shed light on human birth defects and other disorders in which musculoskeletal development is disrupted.

This seminar is a combined seminar with the UCSF Biochemistry & Biophysics Basic Science Seminar Series.

Hosted by Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease trainees.
