We are interested in different types of cellular and molecular movements, from the swimming of flagellated bacteria to the diffusion of proteins in solution and in membranes. We use different model systems (fly embryos, magnetotactic bacteria) and a number of experimental and computational approaches to address questions related to the influence of Brownian motions on cellular processes. Our research is by design interdisciplinary and collaborative. We build most of our microscopes.
