Our broad research goals are to understand the molecular events that regulate mammalian cell growth, differentiation, and motility, and to determine how these events go awry in cancer and other human diseases. Our primary focus is on tyrosine phosphorylation signaling events regulated by cell-ECM interactions and their roles in cell motility and invasion.
