Group Albrecht

Research Focus:

Gaining deeper insight into the mechanisms and regulation of nutrient and xenobiotic transport across the placenta and the blood-milk barrier, respectively, is of fundamental importance in providing healthy and optimal nutrition for the fetus, neonate and infant. In this context, our research team aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of lipid transport across the placenta and study the involvement of membrane lipid transporters in placental pathology. In addition, our group investigates ABC and solute transporters in the mammary gland. We aim to identify and characterize lipid, drug and vitamin transporters in this organ, and to determine the localization and function of such proteins.
