Molecular and cellular basis of NK and T cell activation

The molecular & cellular basis of NK & T cell activation. Our focus is using computational tools & imaging approaches to understand T cell activation & the function of the immunological synapse. Read More

Molecular and cellular biology of the glomerular epithelial cell - podocyte

The molecular & cellular biology of the glomerular epithelial cell -- podocyte. The podocyte is a fascinating epithelial cell that makes specialized junctional complexes known as slit diaphragms. Read More

Mechanism of ERK activation and its function in T & NK cell function

The role of KSR on the Ras/MAP kinase pathway. We study the phenotypes of the KSR1 and KSR2 knockout mice. In cells, we are interested in understanding the cell biology of KSR. Read More
