One axe revolves around lipid storage and utilization mechanisms. We aim to understand the fate of lipids in cells, from the physical chemistry to the physiological spectrum. We especially study the formation of cellular lipid droplets, organelles at the core of cellular metabolism, and how proteins specifically bind to their surface. To tackle these topics, we combine in vitro emulsion droplets and cell biology approaches.
Our second line of research focuses on the development droplet interface bilayers in microfluidics, and membrane physical chemistry, for a high throughput screening of protein-membrane interactions. We aim with such approaches to develop future diagnostic tools for drugs.
