The Signalling and Cell Cycle Laboratory focuses on studying the basic mechanisms of cell regulation, especially regarding how external signals are interpreted by cells to modulate cell proliferation, differentiation and survival. Our research centers on two main subjects:

  1. Mechanisms of signal integration by p38 MAP kinases and their role in cancer
  2. Regulation and role of the RINGO/Speedy proteins, a new family of CDK activators.
