Division of Developmental Biology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Cincinnati. Ohio, USA

Raphael Kopan, from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, United States, is interested in the mechanisms of Notch signaling, organogenesis, and disease processes. He is currently studying Notch activity in the nucleus, developing new tools to understand Notch concentration-dependent gene regulation. His work into organogenesis and disease focuses on skin and kidney, where he studies the role of Notch signaling in kidney development and adult function and in renal aging as well as the renal stem cell niche.

He has been invited by Anna Bigas (IMIM).
