Scientific interest:

  • Modulation of mechanisms leading to the generation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen metabolites by phagocytes
  • Effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids and products of their peroxidation on the metabolic activity of phagocytes
  • Mutual interactions of phagocytes with other cell types and extracellular matrix components
  • Antioxidative properties of body fluids, drugs and natural compounds
  • Role of myeloperoxidase in the regulation of vascular physiology
  • Redox regulation of intracellular signaling
  • Role of NADPH oxidases in the physiology of non-phagocytic cells
