Professor (Teaching) of Structural Biology, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am not now actively involved in research, but my past endeavors remain central to my position in guiding medical students in their scholarship pursuits.
The cited publications represent three areas of interest:
(1) medical student research (Jacobs and Cross)
(2) women in medicine (Cross and Steward)
(3) the reproductive physiology of early development (Cross and Brinster)
Only one publication is listed in this area since the research is not current, but others (in e.g. Nature, DevBiol, ExpCellRes) give a broader picture of my pursuit when at the University of Pennsylvania.

Martha S. Cyert
Dr. Nancy Chang Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Cyert lab is identifying signaling networks for calcineurin, the conserved Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent phosphatase, and target of immunosuppressants FK506 and cyclosporin A, in yeast and mammals. Cell biological investigations of target dephosphorylation reveal calcineurin?s many physiological functions. Roles for short linear peptide motifs, or SLiMs, in substrate recognition, network evolution, and regulation of calcineurin activity are being studied.
