"EGF receptor endocytosis and signaling in vitro and in vivo: Quantity transits into quality”

Initial attempts to analyze the endocytosis and signaling of the EGF receptor in vivo in mouse tumor xenografts will be described. I will also describe how we are using a combination of endogenous protein tagging by gene-editing, live-cell imaging and quantitative mass-spectrometry to study the spatiotemporal regulation of EGFR signaling to MAP kinases and generate computational models of this signaling process.
