Professional Interests

  • The role of monomeric GTPases in the regulation of cell attachment, migration, and proliferation.
  • Genomic structure of mammalian gene promoters.
  • Applying the tools of cell biology to questions in population biology.

Current Projects:

  • Effect of Rap1 proteins on cell proliferation and programmed cell death.
