"All truths are easy to understand
once they are discovered;
the point is to discover them."
Our group works on the identification of regulators and mechanisms of different modes of cell death (apoptosis, autophagy, necrosis). Yeast as a unicellular organism has been established as valuable model to elucidate conserved cell death pathways. Data obtained in the yeast system is eventually tested for transferability to higher model systems like mammalian cell lines, flies, and mice.
