Cell dynamics - Progida
Our research aims to understand how membrane traffic is regulated in eukaryotic cells, and how it functions in concert with the cytoskeleton.

We are especially interested in elucidating the molecular mechanisms which control the spatio-temporal dynamics and the coordination between membrane traffic and the cytoskeleton, as well as cell motility.
To functionally characterize these processes, we employ a combination of various imaging approaches, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology techniques.
