Professor Thomas Cooper
Baylor College of Medicine

Tom Cooper is a professor in the departments of Pathology & Immunology, Molecular & Cell Biology, and Molecular Physiology & Biophysics at Baylor College of Medicine. Prof. Cooper is a leader in the field of the impact of disrupted RNA processing on human disease. His laboratory identified mis-regulation of alternative splicing as a major pathogenic mechanism in the microsatellite expansion disorder, myotonic dystrophy and is currently investigating the mechanisms of pathogenesis in heart and skeletal muscle. His laboratory is also at the forefront in deciphering the role of alternative splicing in tissue remodeling to adult function during postnatal development. Dr. Cooper serves on the scientific advisory boards of Packard Foundation for ALS research at Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine and the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation and holds the S.
