Microtubule cytoskeleton and vesicular traffic

My lab studies the role of the cytoskeleton in cell and tissue architecture. Our major focus are microtubules: we study how the organization and dynamics of microtubule networks is regulated, how microtubule-based motors control intracellular transport and organelle positioning, and how microtubules contribute to cell motility. In our studies, we combine in vitro reconstitution assays with cell-biological approaches and advanced microscopy.

Keywords: Cytoskeleton / microtubule organization & dynamics / motor proteins / membrane trafficking / fluorescence microscopy

Subject area(s): Cell & Tissue Architecture | Membranes & Transport
