The New Mexico Center for the Spatiotemporal Modeling of Cell Signaling (STMC) is an interdisciplinary, inter-institutional program with two principal scientific goals: 1) to understand cell membrane spatial organization and dynamics; 2) to determine how the spatial proximity, dynamics, interactions and biochemical modifications of membrane receptors and signaling proteins together determine the outcome of complex, interacting cell signaling networks important in immune system diseases and cancer.

Science at the STMC was recently featured on KOB & KRQE TV news, as well as the Albuquerque Journal.
The STMC will host the next NCSB annual meeting (July 9-10, 2015). A link to agenda, registration, lodging will be posted here in February, 2015.
About the STMC: Our research emphasizes the development of new single cell and single molecule technologies to generate improved quantitative data for modeling and the creation of new computational and mathematical tools for image analysis, hypothesis generation and prediction. We support training and outreach programs intended to recruit and equip a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers for successful careers focused on quantitative, systems level analyses of complex biomedical processes. Our infrastructure is designed to sustain systems biology research and training as a long-term area of scientific emphasis at the University of New Mexico (UNM) and in the partnering Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and to lead the advancement of women and minorities within the discipline of systems biology. The STMC is one of 14 National Centers for Systems Biology funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).
