About the Lab

Early studies from the Ginsberg laboratory established that the matrix protein fibronectin binds to specific cell surface receptors. These receptors are members of a widely distributed protein family, now termed integrins. This protein family is essential for the normal development and functioning of both vertebrates and invertebrates.
