Membrane Trafficking


Phone +3908119230620


My work has focused on the molecular mechanisms controlling intracellular membrane trafficking, a process that is crucial for the maintenance of cell organization, organelle homeostasis, and for intercellular communication. In recent years, our research has aimed to develop therapeutic strategies to cure inherited diseases.
