PhD, University of Cologne

Her research interests and expertise is in intracellular receptor sorting controls basic cellular functions such as nutrient uptake and signaling as well as complex behaviors such as migration, differentiation and tissue morphogenesis. Accordingly, the proteins and mechanisms involved in the various sorting pathways are key to normal cell physiology and their misregulation directly contributes to human disease.

Her laboratory focused on clathrin-mediated sorting events and the regulation of these events by the NECAP protein family.
