Research group Alejandro Bertorello
This research group, Membrane Signaling Networks, is within the Atherosclerosis Research Unit at the Department of Medicine Solna, Karolinska Institutet.
The mission of the group is to understand at the molecular level the cellular mechanisms behind the translation of G protein-coupled receptor signals and their integration into signaling networks.
Achieving temporal and spatial organization between receptor pathways and effectors wherever their location within the cell is essential for reaching specificity and avoiding deletereous crosstalk.
Our major goals are to understand and clearly define mechanisms of disease that could lead to the establishment of new and reliable therapeutic approaches within the areas of reno vascular hypertension and cardiovascular complications.
