In our group we perform research to better understand blood vessel formation and the fundamental mechanisms of cell signaling, cell migration and tumor growth. To this end, a substantial part of our work is to create new and better methods based on microfluidic technology to enable high-resolution studies of cells as they communicate and migrate.

Ongoing Projects...

In our lab, we perform research to better understand how cells of the vascular system and cancer cells secrete factors in a process called exocytosis (1) and how this affects signaling and communication between cells (2). We also study how signaling receptors at the cell surface are recycled within cells (3), and finally how some of the molecules affecting the communication between cells are produced (4). We are also interested in how these events affect directed cell migration, a process called chemotaxis
