Kim Cooper

Associate Professor
University of California, San Diego

Kim Cooper is an Associate Professor in the Cell and Developmental Biology Section of the UC San Diego Division of Biological Sciences. Kim received her Ph.D. in the lab of Dr. Cecilia Moens at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center where she studied the genetics of hindbrain motor neuron specification and cellular behavior. Her interest in limb development and the diversity of form in animals drew her to a postdoctoral position with Dr. Cliff Tabin in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School. Work in her lab at UC San Diego focuses on the mechanisms of limb evolution and on developing approaches to model such complex genetic traits in mice. Kim has received numerous awards, including the Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, the NSF CAREER Award, and Harvard University Certificate of Distinction in Teaching.
