Current focus

Our lab focuses on (a) the structural aspects of cell signaling and gene regulation in selected human diseases and (b) selected membrane proteins involved in cell signaling and transportation.

We use X-ray crystallography as the main tool to determine protein structures and follow with biophysical, biochemical and functional characterization.
