Normal cellular function is maintained by a complex system of signaling molecules (signaling cascades) that coordinate cell response to various stimuli.

Defects in cellular signaling can lead to diseases such as diabetes (insulin resiastance) and cancer.

Understanding cell signaling is of major importance and provides the basis for defining novel tools for targeting signaling molecules and pathways involved in diseases.
