The Gene Discovery Research Team

> Associate Professor Sandra Cooper, Gene Discovery Group Leader

Sandra is a neuroscientist whose interest is the mechanism of disease, how specific patient mutations affect cellular function, and the molecular basis for disease onset and progression. She leads the INMR Gene Discovery group in investigations uncovering the underlying genetic mechanisms and mutations that lead to neuromuscular disorders, with the hope of finding better treatments and cures.
