Ada Cavalcanti-Adam is a research group leader at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, University of Heidelberg and head of Central Scientific Facility “Biomaterials and Molecular Biology” at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart. Her main research interest is on extracellular stimuli which guide cell structure and functions with a special focus on the role of growth factors on cell adhesion and migration.
I am an evolutionary biologist and functional morphologist with diverse interests. My major focus is on the evolution of the masticatory apparatus of mammals, particularly rodents. I am also working on an anatomy ontology for muscles of the head and neck in tetrapods. I also study the biomechanics of teeth, as well as the neurophysiology of mastication.
