Research in the Department of Cell Biology aims to understand the molecular principles governing organization, metabolism and differentiation at both the cellular and organismal level. The ultimate goal being to provide the knowledge necessary to develop novel therapeutic strategies for treatment of diseases including cancer, autoimmunity and developmental disorders. Our investigations are therefore performed in both healthy and pathological contexts.
- Prof. Judith Klumperman: Understand how genetic mutations lead to cellular disorganization and disease, with special emphasis on diseases related to the cellular digestive system, the endo-lysosomes.
- Prof. Madelon Maurice: Mechanisms of Wnt signaling in stem cells, development and cancer.
- Prof. Ger Strous: Cell biology of the growth hormone receptor.
