Clathrin-coated pits

We use quantitative Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy (TIRFM) to study CCP dynamics in living cells.


Clathrin-mediated endocytosis

We use molecular cell biology, biochemistry, and microscopy to elucidate the mechanisms governing CME.


Dynamin-catalyzed vesicle release

We use biochemical and biophysical approaches to study the mechanism of dynamin-catalyzed membrane fission.


We study clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME), the major and best understood endocytic pathway.
