Laboratory of Systems Biology

Head: Marko Vendelin, phone +372 620 4169

(A separate unit of IoC since August 1, 2007.)

The main aim of the laboratory is to study regulation of intracellular processes and understand functional influences of intracellular interactions. For this, a mixture of experimental and theoretical approaches are used.

Specific scientific interests, projects

  • Intracellular compartmentation and diffusion restrictions, influence on bioenergetics
  • How the fine structure of mitochondrion is influencing the dynamics of oxidative phosphorylation?
  • Regulation of energy transfer in different types of cells
  • Metabolic stability of heart muscle cells
  • Interaction between mechanics and energetics of the heart
