Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des Bildes 

Precise regulation of signal transduction is required to control normal biological processes. However, deregulated cellular signal transduction pathways have been related to a number of disorders, ranging from relatively non life-threatening diseases to extremely virulent diseases such as cancer as a consequence of loss of growth control and resistance to apoptosis. In particular targeting of protein kinases is a promising field in the future treatments of cancer since they are able to derail normal biological responses and drive a cell toward neoplastic transformation. Research in our group is focused on a wide range of cellular signal transduction pathways initiated by interaction of host cells with pathogens like Helicobacter pylori, Campylobacter jejuni, Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus cereus, etc.
