Tony has been appointed Co-Director of the Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology graduate program. With approximately 100 students and 150 mentoring faculty, the program is the largest of the interdisciplinary life sciences graduate programs at Ohio State University.

New neurofilament constructs on Addgene

Our untagged mouse neurofilament protein L, M and H cDNA expression constructs are now available on Addgene


We are cell biologists in the Department of Neuroscience at Ohio State University. We study the cytoskeleton of nerve cells and the mechanism of axonal transport.

Our main focus is the biology neurofilaments in health and disease. We use a broad range of cellular and molecular techniques to study the transport and assembly dynamics of neurofilaments in nerve cells.

Our core expertise is in light microscopy, protein biochemistry and nerve cell culture.
