The cell biology of intercellular signalling: lessons from rhomboids and beyond

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Matthew Freeman

Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford. Oxford, UK

Matthew Freeman, head of Sir William Dunn School of Pathology from the University of Oxford, UK, is studying the cellular mechanisms that regulate signalling between animal cells, and how that signalling controls biological functions like development and physiology. His focus are the rhomboid proteins, intramembrane proteases conserved across evolution that regulate the production of extracellular signals, and he studies their genetics, cell biology and biochemistry using Drosophila, mice and human cells. 

He has been invited by Pedro Carvalho (CRG).
