NIH funds Padgett's joint project with MBB's Grant

Abstract: We expect that our findings will provide unique insight into how trafficking mechanisms influence signaling pathways, and will improve our ability to treat diverse diseases that arise from misregulation of receptor signaling strength, such as in cancers, and other diseases associated with misregulated retrograde recycling including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

The project titled Intercellular Signaling and Endosome to Golgi Transport in Multicellular Animals, a joint grant with Barth Grant, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry (MBB), and Richard Padgett, Professor in MBB and Waksman Institute investigator, was funded for four years by the National Institutes of Health.
