Jianmin Su, Ph.D.
Research Assistant Professor
I am working in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Fox exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive synapse formation—synaptic targeting, synaptic differentiation and maturation. For more details, please see Dr. Michael Fox’s website at http://research.vtc.vt.edu/employees/michael-fox-phd/.
