Dr. Weiss’s laboratory focuses on how protein kinase signaling pathways coordinate cytoskeleton organization, membrane traffic, and gene expression to define cell architecture. The Weiss lab's present work is concentrated on understanding the functions of p21-activated kinases (PAKs) and the Ndr/warts family kinase Cbk1. The PAKs and Cbk1 play important roles in the cell cycle. Understanding how any protein kinase relays information requires identification of its regulatory partners and downstream phosphorylation targets.
