Research

research overview

  • Dr. Falke's laboratory investigates the molecular basis of the chemical sensing pathways that enable cells to guide their movements, including the chemosensory systems of bacteria and human macrophages. This work is revealing fundamental insights into the molecular nature of cell signaling, and is developing methods widely used in biochemistry and biophysics.
