An Interactive Education

In the Department of Chemistry at Michigan Tech, we pride ourselves on the top-notch education and valuable guidance we offer to students seeking both undergraduate and graduate degrees. We believe that chemistry is a hands-on science best taught through personal interaction and lab experiences that are both practical and relevant.

It is well-established that in animal cells phosphoinositides play a central role in signal transduction by undergoing signal-stimulated hydrolysis to generate second messengers. However, the biochemical aspects of phosphoinositides in plant cells is not well-understood. Dr. Murthy's research group is investigating the structure, metabolism and biological role of phosphoinositides in . . .
