Topic Area


The activity of the MAPK pathway (yellow circle) is affected by other pathways that regulate filamentous growth. Each dot represents a pathway, each line, a functional connection between pathways or shared targets.

Faculty focus on how signaling pathways regulate cell processes

Signaling faculty study cellular communication and the intracellular pathways that regulate activity. These faculty use a wide range of model organisms and techniques to examine a diverse array of signaling pathways involved in hormonal regulation, sensory transduction, and cell growth and metabolism.

Faculty working in the Signaling research area include Drs. Paul Cullen, Derek Daniels, and, Denise Ferkey.
