General Information

The laboratory was founded in 2015. It studies mechanisms that can facilitate partial restring of the chemical compounds involved in cell signaling.

The laboratory is focused, in particular, on small secondary signaling molecule-messengers, such as nitric oxide. These molecules form the basis of a large number of signaling processes in the body and their failures play an important role in pathological processes such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Thus, the laboratory mission is to study the mechanisms, laid in the foundation of these molecules and to develop new pharmacological approaches based on these mechanisms.

The research team is particularly interested in nitrosylation, the oxidative modification of thiol residues with nitric oxide. It is a fundamental signaling mechanism, and it works in every known living organism from bacteria to plants and people. Therefore, the studies conducted in the laboratory are on the cutting edge of the mentioned scientific field.
