Our group investigates the pathogenesis of cystic kidney disease, cilia dependent signal transduction and the cell biological function of cilia proteins. We use various imaging approaches including live cell imaging to study transgenic cell lines for functional parameters. In addition we use orthologous mouse models of polycystic kidney disease (pkd) to translate observations derived from cell based studies into the in vivo setting. We provide cell lines, mouse models and expertise to groups within KIDGEM who study pkd and cilia function.
