Cells are the fundamental building blocks of all living organisms. Our aim is to acquire novel insights into the structure and function of cells and to decipher the cellular basis for human disease such as cancer and neurological disorders. To achieve this goal we combine the latest methods and technologies in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and microscopy.
