Our group works on mechanisms of intracellular signal transduction in fundamental biological processes, including cellular activation, differentiation, and migration. An emerging concept is the high systemic interdependence of cellular communication pathways. Our main interest is the elucidation of circuits, which link immune control mechanisms to tissue renewal/maintenance and metabolic stress regulation. We are specifically interested in the elucidation of cytoplasmic enzymes and adapter proteins, which control motility and activation of mammalian immune cells. Furthermore, we have embarked on the elucidation of novel nucleic-acid/protein interactions, which act at the core of controlling “stemness”/differentiation checkpoints in stem cells, in embryonic tissue, and in tumor cells.
