Research Interests

The Smith laboratory uses insect models to study the coordination of growth with major developmental change. Molecular and cellular techniques are used to study cellular signaling pathways responsible for the onset of metamorphosis. Recent work in the lab has focused on interactions between insect insulin-like hormones and insect steroids, the actions of which closely resemble those of vertebrate developmental hormones.
