Welcome to the Jacinto Lab at Rutgers!

Our laboratory aims to understand how cellular signals are wired to control growth and metabolism. We focus on the cell signaling pathways that respond to nutrients and growth signals. We investigate how stress conditions  antagonize these pathways leading to pathological conditions.  Our studies have direct implications for understanding and developing therapy for cancer, diabetes, immune-related diseases and aging. We combine  mammalian cells and mouse models for our studies.
