Scientific Interests
Vesicular carriers and trafficking, pulmonary fibrosis, receptors and effectors.

Laboratory
The laboratory has a solid record of using electron microscopy as the main imaging method. The emphasis is on TEM and SEM with a particular attention for immunostaining, quantitation and spatial reconstruction. We are also using many methods from light microscopy including immunostaining on fixed and semi thin cryo sections, FRET, FRAP and confocal microscopy.

Area of Research
The preferred area of research is vascular biology with emphasis on endothelial heterogeneity, cellular signaling, signaling to and from cytoskeleton, inter-endothelial communications, and endothelial interaction with themselves and with their surroundings. My special interest is on the development and adequate usage of molecular methods particularly the one related to gene expression and gene activity control.
