About the scientist
The group's work addresses major health problems such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and obesity, as well as AIDS and other infectious diseases. Currently, the group is focused on understanding intracellular signalling pathways and in particular, how cAMP signalling networks cross-talk with and integrate into the complex web of signalling pathways. In order to perform their research, the group also establishes new tools and technology platforms for in-depth study of these pathways and to promote the development of highly specific pharmaceuticals with minimal side-effects. Furthermore, several translational research projects are running, including the discovery of and intervention with mechanisms of suppression of anti-tumor immunity, development of immunostimulating therapies in HIV and perturbation of damaging signal pathways in heart failure.
