The focus of our research is
- Cellular and molecular mechanism of exocytoses of mucus and surfactant of lung epithelial cells
- Calcium storage and calcium signaltransduction of lung epithelial cells
- Ion transport, ion channels, tight junctions and barrier function of the pulmonary epithelium
- Mechanotransduction: stimulus-secretions-coupling, mechanical stimulation of cells
- Development of improved cell culture methods, "lung on a chip"
