Welcome to the Ngo Lab at Boston University! 
 

We study how cells communicate with one another at cell-cell interfaces. How are signals exchanged and interpreted at these sites? And how are molecules organized to ensure accurate information transfer? Our projects span diverse topic areas, including protein engineering, cell biology, neurobiology, synthetic biology, and bioengineering.
