Our current research is focussed on the following aspects of cell biology:
● how do epithelial and endothelial cells establish cell-cell contacts and in particular tight junctions?
● how do epithelial and endothelial cells develop apico-basal polarity?
● what is the role of cell adhesion molecules in these processes?
In our projects, we apply primarily methods of protein biochemistry, molecular biology and fluorescence microscopy
(including confocal and 4Pi microscopy).
