Our research culminates to answer the question: what is extracellular actin’s role in health and disease? By examining three different forms of extracellular actin – cell surface bound, free circulating, and those associated with the extracellular matrix – we can understand their application and how they can be used to innovate the tools we currently have to work with diseases.
