About us

The Teixeira Lab uses a multi-disciplinary approach including materials science, biophysics and cell biology to understand how cells interact with their microenvironment. Cells coordinate their activities into functional tissues, organs and organisms. We are interested in finding new paradigms in the mechanisms of short- and long-range cell communication in the context of development, cancer and the immune system.
