Higher-order molecular mechanisms in cell growth

Our group is nested at the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS) at the Pompeu Fabra University. We are focused on the quantitative characterisation of complex molecular processes that regulate cell growth, both from a mechanistic and structural point of view. The main target of our studies is vesicle trafficking and our favorite model organism is the budding yeast. We combine cell engineering, advanced light microscopy, biochemical approaches and data integration in silico to analyse the concerted action of protein complexes that build supra-assemblies. When needed, we develop new approaches to visualise those processes that could not be described before. The mechanistic insights are then extrapolated to physiological and pathological conditions. For more information about our work do not hesitate to navigate through the “Research” page.
