Academic Interests

Intracellular transport of endocytosed ligands, endocytic mechanisms, transport of protein toxins from plants and bacteria. Toxins are used as probes to characterize intracellular transport and they are studied since they can be used in diagnosis and therapy of cancer. For more information, please see my home-page at Oslo University Hospital:


MBV4240/MBV9240 - BIochemical mechanisms in intracellular transport
