Associate Professor Antony Cooper is a cell and molecular biologist/geneticist with strong interests in elucidating how cellular dysfunction results in human diseases, with a specific interest in neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinson’s Disease. His research on neurodegenerative diseases focuses on understanding the basis of Parkinson’s disease. Antony completed a PhD at McGill University working on membrane trafficking, and post-doctoral studies at the University of Oregon involving both protein splicing and proteostasis/protein quality control in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). As an Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri his interests evolved to protein misfolding, ER stress and oxidative stress, factors common to many neurodegenerative diseases.
