My laboratory is interested in the role of Rho and Ras family GTPases in regulating animal cell biology. Rho, Rac and Cdc42, three members of the Rho family, each control a signal transduction pathway linking plasma membrane receptors to the assembly of the actin cytoskeleton and associated integrin adhesion complexes.
