Personal profile

Research Interests

We are interested in the biology of phospholipids in cellular membrane networks. We use advanced molecular probes and imaging techniques to characterize membrane phospholipid dynamics in normal physiology and under pathological conditions. These research efforts lead to new discoveries in the fundamental roles of phospholipid membranes, and the development of diagnostic biomarkers for human diseases.
