Welcome to the Martinez-Agosto laboratory homepage. Our research program focuses on the molecular regulation of tissue and organismal growth. The major areas of investigation include the role of signaling pathways in the hormonal regulation of tissue growth, the interaction between environment and nutrition and growth, the role of stem cell niches in tissue growth, and the dysregulation of growth signaling pathways in human diseases including cancer, overgrowth, and IUGR/failure to thrive syndromes.
