Morgan, Jennifer Associate Director & Associate Scientist, Bell Center

Positions

Dr. Jennifer Morgan studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which neurons communicate with each other at synapses within the vertebrate central nervous system. Current research goals involve identifying the fundamental mechanisms by which neurotransmission is maintained via local synaptic vesicle trafficking. Dr. Morgan also studies how synaptic transmission is restored after spinal cord injury, in particular the contributions that neuronal survival, axon and synapse regeneration, and compensatory neurite plasticity make toward restoring locomotor behaviors.
