About: dsuter

Dr. Daniel Suter studied Biology at the ETH Zurich in Switzerland, receiving a BS degree in Biological Sciences in 1988. He conducted graduate research on neuronal cell adhesion molecules with Prof. Peter Sonderegger in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Zurich. After receiving a PhD in Biochemistry in 1995, he joined the laboratory of Prof. Paul Forscher at Yale University as a Postdoctoral fellow with support from the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Roche Research Foundation. During his time at Yale University, Dr. Suter made significant contributions to the understanding of the underlying mechanisms of neuronal growth cone motility and guidance, using quantitative high-resolution live cell imaging techniques. For example, he provided the first direct experimental evidence that support the model of substrate-cytoskeletal coupling during growth cone migration. In 2003, he started his own lab at Purdue University as an Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences, continuing to unravel the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms that control the directional movements of neuronal growth cones. His independent research program has focused on the dynamics and mechanics of axonal growth during development and regeneration following injury using both Aplysia and zebrafish as model systems. Since 2017, Dr. Suter is a Professor of Biological Sciences in the Department of Biological Sciences and member of the Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience at Purdue University.

Postdoctoral Position in Developmental Neuroscience

Posted by on January 5th, 2021

A postdoctoral research associate position is available immediately to investigate the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) as physiological signaling molecules in axonal growth and guidance in the lab of Dr. Daniel M. Suter at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN Specifically, the work will investigate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of how ROS regulate[…]
