The Meyer lab seeks to understand how human cells move and divide to build, maintain and repair tissues and organs. The movement and division of cells is controlled by integration of large numbers of mitogen, cell contact, and stress signaling inputs that not only control the maintenance and repair of tissues but also drive cancer progression. We are identifying new targets for cancer therapy by developing and applying cutting edge live-cell microscopy approaches to understand the elusive and complex signaling systems controlling cell movement and proliferation of normal and cancer cells.
