Ongoing Research Projects

On this page you will find information about doctoral students' research projects.
There is also a description of the methods used within the project.

In vivo imaging of neutrophils (red) patrolling the pulmonary vasculature (blue).

Neutrophil-endothelial cells interaction; neutrophils, green, are in close distance with endothelial cells (red) of the angiogenic sprouts in co-cultures of neutrophils and aortic rings.

In BiFC system, each peptide is connected to the N- or C-terminal half of YFP via a linker. When two peptides interact, the YFP parts are brought together allowing YFP to reconstitute, an event that can be detected as a fluorescent signal. Peptides can interact in both parallel (left) and anti-parallel (right) manners. PPI: protein-protein interaction. YFP: yellow fluorescent protein

The interplay between the fibrotic tumor environment and the tumor cells in hepatocellular carcinoma
