Research questions

Our long-term goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the process of autophagy and their link to human disease.

We currently have a specific focus on lipid-binding proteins involved in autophagy and our research questions include:

  1. How is specific cargo recognized by the autophagosomal membrane?
  2. What is the origin and lipid composition of the autophagosomal membrane?
  3. How is selective autophagy linked to cancer and other diseases?
