Brief description Normal development of a baby and our health after birth is dependent on how our cells behave. Signals move between cells and within them to tell them what to do. Proteins interacting with other proteins mostly transmit these signals. This research focuses on a protein named Notch and the signals that it transmits. Notch functions in normal processes, such as blood vessel formation; but abnormal signaling causes and/or contributes to pathological situations such as degenerative disease and cancer. We are working to understand how the Notch signal is made and how to control it when it is abnormal. This will allow new medications to be developed to help people who have cancer and other Notch-related illnesses
