jun. Prof. Helen May-Simera : Ciliar Cellbiology

Research topics:

Our research focuses on primary cilia, eyelash-like protrusions on the cell membrane. Like 'biological antennae', they receive information that is crucial to how cells develop. When cilia don't function it can lead to serious illnesses, called ciliopathies. Specifically we are looking into how cilia function in eye cells and how ciliopathy patients can be treated.
