  • Ciliopathies are a group of diseases that affect kidney and retina among other organs. We identify a missense mutation in VPS15 in a family with a ciliopathy phenotype and show that deside being required for trafficking and autophagy, VPS15 regulates primary cilium length in human fibroblasts.

Welcome to the ITG

The Institute of Toxicology and Genetics (ITG) is a trans-disciplinary institute where biologists, chemists and physicists together aim to elucidate molecular and cellular interactions at functional interfaces. This knowledge guides the rational design and engineering of novel sophisticated tools for controlling the behaviour of cells in vivo and in vitro.
Our major topics are:

  • Cellular signalling Profile
  • Cell differentiation and proliferation 
  • Development and regeneration
  • Pathophysiology of diseases
