I am interested in cell signaling as the complex system with many ways of regulation. The dysfunction of it can lead to various diseases as for example cancer, which is not only the 2nd cause of people’s death but also a very individual disease making it very important to investigate. I am also interested in cell cytoskeleton and transport mechanisms. Additionally, energetic processes are complex but exciting to explore.
