Research Focus:

Gaining deeper insight into the mechanisms and regulation of nutrient and xenobiotic transport across the placenta is of fundamental importance for providing healthy and optimal nutrition to the fetus. In this context, our research team aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of iron, amino acid and cholesterol transport across the placenta and to study the involvement of placental membrane transporters in the physiology and pathophysiology of the human placenta.
