We study the mechanisms mediating formation and maintenance of cell polarity. The main focus of the lab are several aspects of permanent and transient cell polarization that include cell division, cell migration and invasion as well as epithelial tissue morphogenesis. This means that our research is very interdisciplinary. We use experimental approaches that vary between structural and molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, electron and fluorescent microscopy and genetics. My lab's motto is to learn and use any available techniques or approaches that are needed to solve biological riddle. As the result, we also use several different experimental model systems: 2D and 3D cell culture as well as mice and zebrafish animal models.
