Our research focuses on the development and application of quantitative mass spectrometry and microscopy-based proteomics to advance the understanding of human cell biology. Currently, we study centrosomes, cilia, autophagosomes, mitochondria, and structures in the nucleus. The main objectives are to determine the protein composition and dynamic properties of these cell organelles, the function of selected groups of proteins, and how they contribute to the biological processes and diseases associated with these organelles. We are also studying cell signalling mediated by post translation modifications, currently within the DNA damage response and the autophagy and immune systems.
