Welcome to the Schwarzbauer Lab

Research in our lab focuses on the role of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and integrin signaling in cell adhesion and cell migration. Most of the lab studies fibronectin a major component of the ECM and important integrin ligand.

Just as the ECM is composed of a population of diversely functioning proteins (fibronectin, tenascins, and collagens, just to name a few), our lab has diverse projects, including mechanisms of matrix assembly, ECM in skeletal development, and metabolic effects on ECM.
