Florentine Rutaganira - Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Developmental Biology

Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Florentine Rutaganira uses choanoflagellates - the closest living single-celled relatives to animals - to study the origin of animal cell communication. Dr. Rutaganira applies chemical, genetic, and cell biological tools to probe choanoflagellate cell-cell communication, with implications for understanding not only animal cell signaling, but also the origin of multicellularity in animals.

Ruth Huttenhain - Assistant Professor of Molecular & Cellular Physiology

Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Ruth Huttenhain's group deciphers how G protein-coupled receptors decode extracellular cues into dynamic and context-specific cellular signaling networks to elicit diverse physiologic responses. They exploit quantitative proteomics to capture the spatiotemporal organization of signaling networks combined with functional genomics to study their impact on physiology.
