My laboratory studies the role of receptor tyrosine kinases in normal physiology and disease progression and the downstream signals that mediate these responses in vitro and in vivo. More specifically, we study the murine Stk receptor tyrosine kinase and its function in macrophage regulation and inflammation and in leukemic development. We have also taken advantages of differences in the Stk receptor and its human homologue, Ron, to further understand mechanisms of regulation of receptor tyrosine kinases.
