Lipid Transfer Protein Research group

Glycosphingolipids act as recognition sites on the cell surface, aid to maintain the stability of membranes and connect cells to form tissues. Much remains unknown about the basic aspects of glycosphinglipid synthesis and breakdown and in particular, their intracellular transport. Our research focuses on understanding glycosphingolipid transport inside the cell.
