The laboratory of Dr. Kristi Wharton
Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry
The goal of the research in our laboratory is to understand how TGF-B signaling molecules facilitate the communication between cells. Cellular communication is essential to the proper manifestation of cell movements, growth, and differentiation during the development of multi-cellular organisms.
