Ceramides belong to animportant class of sphingolipids and play key role in different biologicalprocesses such as cell signaling, proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis.Particularly, the role of ceramides in apoptosis has received special attentionin recent years. The objective of his researchproject is to understand how favorably (or unfavorably) ceramides associate withdifferent phospholipids and with other sphingolipids thought to be present inlipid domains in cell membranes,which may have distinct effects on cell physiology.
