Inter- and Intra-Cellular Communications

Overall Research Goal

Our group investigates the complex nature of the signaling (s) by which insulin controls cellular functions.

Our overall goal is to dissect the molecular mechanisms of insulin action by using a combination of quantitative proteomic and phosphoproteomic approaches, computational analysis, and classic cell biology and physiology experiments.

Identifying new mediators of insulin signaling cascades controlling growth and metabolism may reveal specific targets for drug intervention that specifically impinge on precise cellular processes.
