We study signaling networks that regulate secretion, endocytosis, autophagy, cell migration and cancer metastasis with particular emphasis on the interplay between G protein and growth factor signaling. Another area of interest is in the cell biology of the podocyte or glomerular epithelial cell. Our long-term goals are to advance understanding of the role of G proteins in regulating cell processes in health and disease as well as to define the molecular mechanisms of glomerular filtration in health and disease.
