Cellular Logistics in Cancer

Our lab is performing both basic and translational cancer research in the fields of endocytosis, stem cells and functional genomics. A long-standing goal of our group is to elucidate the role of endocytosis in cell signalling and cancer. Our contributions to this field have helped to change the way endocytosis is perceived, from being simply a mechanism for signal attenuation to being a vital component of the cell signalling machinery that provides spatial and temporal dimensions to signalling events. read more
