Research

Our research interests include fundamental cell and molecular biology topics such as protein prenylation, membrane identity and traffic, function of Rab GTPases in organelle biogenesis, motility, secretion and phagocytosis. We are also interested in the cellular and molecular basis of diseases involving perturbations of membrane traffic and is currently involved in retinal degenerations (Choroideremia and AMD), pigmentation and hematopoietic dysfunction syndromes (Hermansky-Pudlak and Griscelli Syndromes), allergy and host-pathogen interactions (Malaria).
