Research

Research Interests:

My research interest is focused on the neuropeptide signaling systems in echinoderms. We use the common starfish Asterias rubens as a model animal to investigate the evolution and physiological roles of neuropeptide signaling systems. My current project is to investigate the identification, bioactivity and cellular localization of two relaxin-like neuropeptides and two pedal peptide/orcokinin type neuropeptides, which will give us a unique idea about the evolution of these two neuropeptides across the animal kingdom.
