    Research Description
    We investigate the cell-cell signals that organize yeast into communities, such as colonies and communities. These simple chemical signals and their functions in organizing communities may reflect some of the most ancient and fundamental forms of communication on the planet. The ways that cells communicate, and the evolution of these forms of communication have profound biological and health significance.

Now that UR-Linked has helped you to identify a faculty member whose interests align with your interests, be sure to review the essential steps in contacting a potential faculty mentor.

The Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Jane Greer., can provide you with further guidance about finding and connecting with faculty mentors at UMKC.

Once you have reviewed the essential steps to prepare for connecting with a potential faculty mentor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to connect with the faculty member and to begin a conversation about how you might work with that him or her.
