Research Interests

I'm interested in genetics and cell biology of ciliopathies, in particular Meckel-Gruber and Joubert syndromes. Although many causative genes for these conditions were identified we are still hoping to complete the set. I look into function of the identified genes/proteins in primary cilia function and sturcture, particularly its subcompatment - the transition zone. I aim to identify new transition zone components using high-content high-throughput screening. I'm also interested in the role of post-translational modifications of ciliary proteins, in particular ubiquitination, SUMOylation and glycosylation.
