We investigate the molecular basis of cell-cell interactions in cancer and development.

About 200 published papers, abstracts/presentations and books with about 700 student co-authors resulted from our work. Our success with student research accomplishments was recognized in 2009 by a U.S. Presidential Award from the White House and National Science Foundation.

Over $7 million in research and training grants have been awarded for our programs.
