Selected Research Area: Signal Transduction

Signal Transduction is broadly defined as the mechanisms through which intra- and intercellular signals are generated and metabolized to regulate critical biochemical processes involved in growth, differentiation, and survival.  Our Department explores the mechanistic underpinnings of these pathways at the cellular, genetic, biochemical, and biophysical level.  Such studies provide insights into unappreciated physiological functions of these pathways, and identify new targets for various human diseases.
