POLARITY AND TRAFFICKING
Cell Biology Department, School of Biology
Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain)
Loss of cell polarity is a hallmark of cancer and other pathological processes. The focus of our research is to understand the mechanisms mediating the establishment and maintenance of polarized plasma membrane domains. In particular, we are interested in studying how protein trafficking mechanisms can contribute to the appropriate localization of key polarity proteins and give rise to epithelial cell polarization.
We are based at:
Departamento de Biología Celular (Despacho 33 / Lab 3)
Facultad de Biología

We say bye-bye to Javi, who will start a Master in Neuroscience next year, and welcome Ángela! She joins the lab with a contract from the 'I Investigate' programme.
