Our group is interested in the cytoskeleton of primary human cells, especially of
monocytic and endothelial cells. We study the dynamic regulation of the actin and tubulin
cytoskeletons in the context of cell adhesion, migration, invasion and phagocytosis. These
cellular functions are based on closely regulated and spatially restricted reorganization
of the cytoskeleton, and play critical roles during physiological or pathological processes
such as diapedesis, wound healing, metastasis, or uptake of pathogens.
