Our research focuses on the processes that mediate the movement of membrane proteins throughout cells, the cell's sorting machineries responsible for receptor-mediated endocytosis and for secretion, and how they are high-jacked by toxins, viruses and bacterial pathogens to enter cells. We also study how during division, cells control their size, organelle architecture and membrane traffic.
