Signal Transduction

Master
Content

Several teams of faculty and student investigate how a cell receives and transduces signals, employing a variety of state-of-the-art techniques. Understanding this complex and highly interconnected signaling cascade provides a roadmap for how cells work, explains the molecular basis of human diseases, and ultimately provides new strategies for developing novel therapeutics to treat cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The signal transduction research in CPSB brings together a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative team of scientists. Our research interests include cell signaling events mediated by protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation through the actions of protein kinases and phosphatases. Additional research areas are signaling events in visual transduction, G-protein pathway, nitric oxide-cGMP pathway and Phosphoinositide signaling.
