Research area: Bacterial cell biology

Bacteria represent the simplest forms of life, which makes them powerful tools to study the basic concepts of cellular organization. Despite their comparably simple architecture, they have evolved an amazing variety of mechanisms to control the spatial arrangement of cellular components, including localized protein complexes, diverse cytoskeletal structures, and complex signalling cascades. These regulatory systems control a range of essential processes, such as cell growth, cell differentiation, chromosome segregation, and cell division.
