Signal Transduction and Transcriptional Regulation

Faculty members in this group are interested in fundamental molecular mechanisms that allow cells to specifically and efficiently respond to hormones, neurotransmitters and other environmental cues. Several labs investigate the biological roles of protein interactions and covalent modifications such as protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation and protein/DNA methylation and/or acetylation in modulating gene transcription.

These MPB faculty are also active participants in the Vanderbilt Diabetes center, the Vanderbilt ingram Cancer, and the Vanderbilt Brain Institute,
