Working in tight collaboration with Hof Fluorescence Group
The organisation of proteins at the plasma membrane of mammalian cells is defined by their structure and local environment. We are interested in the transmembrane domain and proximal sequences and their impact on nanoscopic membrane organisation.
Co-receptors CD4 and CD8 significantly influence T cell development and function by modulating sensitivityof the main T cell receptor (TCR). We are interested in nanoscopic organisation of CD4 and CD8 at the surface of T cells.
Super-resolution imaging currently opened new possibilities for biologists and biophysicists. We are employing single-molecule localisation microscopy and other fluorescnce techniques to bettwer understand cellular plasma membrane.
