Remarks / more information:

undefinedThomas Kirchhausen is professor of cell biology and pediatrics at Harvard Medical School (Boston, USA). His research focuses on the processes that mediate and regulate the movement of membrane proteins throughout cells. In particular, the molecular mechanisms that underlie the cell's sorting machineries responsible for receptor-mediated endocytosis and for secretion, how they are high jacked by toxins, viruses and bacterial pathogens to enter cells, and how during cell division, cells control their size and organelle architecture.  

Thomas Kirchhausen is NVBMB speaker of the year 2015.
