Laboratory of cell dynamics

In the Laboratory of cell dynamics we use a model organism, Dictyostelium discoideum, to investigate how cells divide by binary cytokinesis, feed by phagocytosis and macropinocytosis, migrate towards the food source, and aggregate during periods of starvation. 

Specifically, our research is focused on regulatory mechanisms and signaling pathways mediated by a group of GTP-hydrolyzing proteins,
small GTPases, which govern the actin cytoskeleton dynamics.

We are using the methods of cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, advanced light microscopy, image analysis and mathematical modeling.  

We collaborate with research groups from Croatia, Germany, Slovenia, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
