McCartney Laboratory: Signal Transduction, Cytoskeleton, Morphogenesis, Drosphila, Development, Biosensors    

Research Overview
Morphogenesis is the creation of form, and in our lab we study morphogenesis at various levels from rearrangements of the cytoskeleton to the bending of tissues. The core of our current work stems from our studies of the colon cancer tumor suppressor Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) in the Drosophila model system. (more)
