Carole Parent

Our Research

The parent labs works to understand how cells detect and respond to external chemotactic signals that are detected by GPCRs, and, in particular, how the spatial and temporal relay of chemotactic signals between cells impact single and group cell migration in the context of inflammation and cancer metastasis.
