The broad goal of research in my lab is to define the function and regulation of heterotrimeric G proteins in leukocyte migration and tumor metastasis. The major focus of our research is to elucidate how G protein ß? subunits orchestrate the formation of specific signaling complexes to promote directional cell migration.
