Schuhmacher Lab – Chemical and Membrane Biology

Flask with photocage and TLC plates under UV lamp

It’s all about the lipids: In the Schuhmacher Lab we are interested in answering outstanding questions in membrane biology. Our chemical biology approach opens the door to investigate the so far mostly invisible and thus secret work of lipids. In particular, we would like to understand the biological role of lipid diversity and their impact on signaling processes.
