Current projects

it was recently discovered that the complement inhibitor CD 59 of the innate immune system plays a fundamental role in regulated exocytosis of insulin in pancreatic beta-cells. To follow up this finding I will investigate the effects of CD59 ablation in vivo in mice, as well as explore the interaction between systemic low grade inflammation and CD59 expression.

Previous nanotechnology studies in our lab have whown the feasibility of usign remotely controlled superparamagnetic nanparticles to trigger cellular responses e.g. apoptosis. The possibility that this approach can be used for triggering other reactions will be explored. This may add a new dimension to cell biology by offering the possibility to trigger intracellular responses with exact temporal control.
