Actin and Cell Migration Lab

Research interests

  • Investigation of actin-based cell migration and cancer cell invasion via protein-focused approaches
  • Expertise in biochemistry, molecular biology and imaging-based in vitro (preclinical) analysis
  • Development of software tools for image processing and for standardized quantitative analysis of cell migration
  • Fundamental research on actin regulation in disease (e.g. HIV, testin-family)
  • Improvement of drug treatments (e.g. hepatocellular carcinoma, use of bacterial peptides)
