My research focus on clustered signaling pathways of molecular partners in defined subcellular compartments (signalosomes) that enables cells to exert highly specialized tasks. Actually, our goal for the future is to unravel the organization of the recently discovered signaling components within functional units by biochemical, molecular, cell biological methods, genetic and omic’s. Research is embedded in the field of integrative pharmacology and translational medicine. We have directed our attention to chronic inflammatory disorders, as evidence exist for a role of our signaling components (Epac, PLD, AKAP, cofilin) in smooth muscle cells, neuronal cells, immune cells as well as cardiomyocytes. Many devastating diseases, e.g. cancer, type-II diabetes mellitus, Alzheimers’s dementia, cardiovascular and airway diseases (heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, developmental defects, asthma and COPD), and infection diseases are associated with defective or derailed signaling processes, and research into the control of these processes clearly is of great public and social importance as well. My research group integrates in vivo, ex vivo translational pharmacology, molecular (cell) biology. Novel techniques like microfluidics, precision cut lung slices and others.
