The Suter lab is interested in understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms of cell motility. We are currently focusing our research efforts on directional movements of neuronal growth cones, which are highly motile structures at the tip of axons and dendrites. Growth cones are sophisticated signaling devices, capable of detecting information in the environment and transducing it towards the dynamic cytoskeleton that ultimately drives the motility. Understanding these mechanisms is not only important for neuronal development, but also to design strategies that overcome neuronal degeneration after injuries and diseases.

The Suter lab is part of the Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Science at and of the Purdue Institute of Integrative Neuroscience at Purdue University. The laboratory is located on the second floor of Lilly Hall of Life Sciences. Thank you for visiting our Website!
