Interactions between cells and their extracellular environment play an essential role in controlling tissue architecture, cell survival, and cell migration. These processes are important for normal animal development and are disrupted in many human diseases. The Cram lab uses the nematode C. elegans to investigate the conserved processes that control…

Interactions between cells and their extracellular environment play an essential role in controlling tissue architecture, cell survival, and cell migration. These processes are important for normal animal development and are disrupted in many human diseases. The Cram lab uses the nematode C. elegans to investigate the conserved processes that control cell migration and mechanotransduction in vivo.

In collaboration with Chemical Engineers, we are also working to improve production of drug compounds by the medicinal plant Catharanthus roseus.
