Center for Molecular Communication and Signaling

The Center for Molecular Communication and Signaling (CMCS) is directed by Biology Professor Gloria Muday; in conjunction with Mathematics Professor Edward Allen; Rebecca Alexander, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Co-Director of the Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities (URECA) Center; and Leslie Poole, Professor of Biochemistry and Director of the Center for Structural Biology.

It teams investigators in the life, physical, computational, and mathematical sciences to tackle basic questions about molecular communication among and within the cells of living organisms ranging from insects to plants to humans. CMCS will enhance opportunities to secure external funds for research and needed equipment by linking the College, Graduate School, and School of Medicine and building connections to Winston-Salem State University, North Carolina A & T State University, and Salem College. Members will share research, instrumentation, teaching, and mentoring resources to advance all areas of the university’s mission, enhancing our national profile and attracting exciting new faculty and students.
