Cell Signaling & Cell/Environment Interactions

It is an inevitable consequence of life that cells interact with their local environment. Cells need to respond to cues from their interactions, be they physical interactions with neighboring cells or chemical interactions with the environment. MCB faculty take a wide variety of approaches to understand the broad scope of cell signaling and adaption.
