  • The plant nuclear envelope is a surprisingly poorly understood system and the research of the group is concentrated on identifying native plant nuclear envelope proteins and studying their properties. In particular, the group¬†

    focuses on:

    1. investigating the SUN domain protein family and nuclear envelope bridging complexes;
    2. protein interaction networks at the plant nuclear envelope;
    3. mechanisms for the targeting and retention of inner nuclear envelope proteins;
    4. localisation and function of novel nuclear envelope proteins in plants
