Metabolism

We study metabolic processes and signal transduction also at the cellular and molecular level.

Concerning energy metabolism, we study mitochondria under both physiological and pathophysiological conditions. We look into the mitochondrial structure and function at mitochondrial defects as well as other metabolic, cardiovascular, and neurophysiological diseases.

Studying various models of mammalian and yeast cells, we investigate transport systems in cell membranes that also play an essential role in cell metabolism.

In the field of signal transduction, we try to explain molecular principles of neural transmission under both physiological and pathophysiological conditions.
