Research Summary

I am a cell biologist aiming to understand molecular mechanisms behind the formation of clathrin transport vesicles. Clathrin has the unique property to self assemble into various types of regular lattices which promotes vesicle formation. Clathrin vesicles have been linked to various human diseases such as diabetes, cancer and pathogen infection. A detailed understanding of clathrin mediated processes will provide new molecular insight into these disorders. Together with Dr. Ernst Ungewickell at Hannover Medical School I have been developing in vitro procedures to study clathrin properties and will continue to do so at UCL. I use a combination of various biochemical and electron microscopy techniques. This has also led to the development of novel approaches in the field of nanotechnology.
