Multiscale analysis of cellular membrane function

Our group studies membrane trafficking and cellular organisation, with a focus on domains of the cell surface, novel pathways of endocytosis, and the cellular role of lipid droplets. We are studying the formation and function of cell surface microdomains called caveolae, the pathways followed by nanoparticles as they enter cells, and the role of lipid droplets in protecting cells against invading pathogens.

Keywords: Caveolae / lipid droplets / endocytosis / electron microscopy / T-tubules / membrane traffic
