    Research interests

    Characterisation of molecular mechanisms involved in selectivity and regulation of the intracellular process autophagy. Autophagy is a crucial process for cellular homeostasis. It selectively degrades intracellular  destroyed or dangerous components, infectious agents or excess components. Autophagy is important for cell survival during various cellular stresses like starvation, infection and oxygen deprivation. Disregulated autophagy is implicated in various diseases like neurodegenerative diseases, Cardiac diseases, and cancer. Furthermore, autophagy has impact on iflammation ang ageing. Our Research Group has a specific focus on understanding the functional mechanisms of selective autophagy receptors, and how their expression and biological activities are regulated upon stress.
