"Transcriptional control of stem cell biology in development and disease" Other events...
Dr Piper graduated from The University of Tasmania, and received his PhD in Developmental Biology from The University of Queensland in 2003. His PhD, performed at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience with Prof Melissa Little, centered on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying embryonic kidney development. His first postdoc was performed with Prof Christine Holt at The University of Cambridge, UK, where he studied the mechanisms by which axonal growth cones navigate to their targets in the optic tectum of the brain. In his second postdoctoral position, with Prof Linda Richards at the Queensland Brain Institute at The University of Queensland, his work focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms of neural progenitor cell specification in the developing cerebral cortex. In late 2010, Dr Piper took up a joint position with the Queensland Brain Institute and The School of Biomedical Sciences to continue his research into the mechanisms underlying neural stem cell differentiation during development and disease. Dr Piper holds an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship (2013-2017).
