Topics of research:


I am member of the pHioniC, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network and my work is focused on the modulation of pressure sensing of pancreatic stellate cells by pancreatic pH in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). In particular we are interested in studying the impact of mechano- and pH-sensing/-transducing proteins on PSC behavior. During my first year I focused my work on one potassium ion channel, K2P2.1, which is sensitive to both, pH and pressure.
