Cell adhesion-mediated signal transduction

We are interested in the molecular pathogenesis of hyperproliferative and inflammatory diseases. Here, our main focus is on the role of β1-integrins and β1-integrin-mediated signal transduction cascades triggering these pathological processes. Furthermore, we investigate the impact of glycosidated phospholipids on these processes.
