The vast majority of biological processes inside a cell are carried out by the coordinated participation of many proteins. Our research focuses on understanding the mechanisms that enable them to work together. Taking a unique approach based on super-resolution microscopy and single-molecule imaging, we are interested in answering two questions: how proteins organize into large complexes such as the nuclear pore complex and centrosome; and how proteins dynamically interact with each other to regulate cell signaling, especially in the G-protein coupled receptor pathway, and for cell adhesion molecules to control the development of the nervous system.
