Teresa (Terri) L. Wood, PhD
Email: terri.wood@rutgers.edu

Research: The Wood laboratory is focused on determining how growth factors and signaling
pathways interact to promote growth, survival and differentiation of breast epithelial and
neural progenitor cells. We conduct in vitro and in vivo studies and make use of mouse
models carrying genetic alterations in genes of interest, particularly in the insulin-like
growth factor family of ligands and receptors and in the TSC/mTOR signaling pathway. These
studies are designed to reveal normal functions of these signaling pathways in growth and
development as well as in neurological disorders and in dysregulated growth in cancer cells.
