Two main research topics in our group are synthetic biology and molecular immunology. The main areas of synthetic biology include i) design of bionanostructures (coiled-coil protein origami), ii) engineering of mammalian cell signaling and information processing and iii) medical applications of synthetic biology. Research in the field of innate immunity is focused on the molecular mechanisms of signaling of Toll-like receptors and MyD88.
