Our group is interested in the modulation of the cellular stress resistance by natural products. Major research foci are the impact of biogenic compounds on the cellular redox balance (Nrf2, ROS as second messenger), on glucose homeostasis (insulin signaling, PTP1B, glucose uptake and metabolism) as well as the role of cellular bioenergetics as determinant of signal transduction and cell phenotype.
