Research areas

The LSRU is composed of six laboratories.

These are :

Signal transduction at the cellular level refers to the transduction of signals from the outside of the cell to the inside...

Cytoskeleton & Cell Plasticity: Inflammation-associated tissue repair and carcinoma progression rely on epithelial cell plasticity which implicates changes in the genetic program and related modifications of cell morphology and function...

Molecular Disease MechanismsThe communication between cells involves extracellular messengers such as growth factors and cytokines...

Neuro Inflammation: the Neurobiology group is investigating the molecular mechanisms of inflammation and differentiation of glial cells that are relevant during neurodegenerative and inflammatory events of the brain...

Immune Cells and Inflammatory Diseases (ICID): In mammals, the innate immune system-mediated inflammation is a part of the first non-specific defense barriers of host against invading pathogens and tissue damage....

Systems Biologythe research of our group focuses on molecular systems biology, particularly on model based data integration and analysis of disease specific molecular networks...
