Overview

Lab Members

Teresa (Terri) L. Wood, PhD
Email: terri.wood@rutgers.edu

Research: The Wood laboratory is focused on determining how growth factors and signaling pathways interact to promote
growth, survival and differentiation of breast epithelial and neural progenitor cells. We conduct in vitro and in vivo studies
and make use of mouse models carrying genetic alterations in genes of interest, particularly in the insulin-like growth
factor family of ligands and receptors and in the TSC/mTOR signaling pathway. These studies are designed to reveal
normal functions of these signaling pathways in growth and development as well as in neurological disorders and in
dysregulated growth in cancer cells.
