Ongoing Projects

  • Role of sterols in the life cycle of C. elegans: Hormonal regulation of dauer formation and molting
  • Role of branched-chain fatty acids in the structuring of the membrane
  • Lipids required for the polarization of embryo, the structure of eggshell and osmo-regulation
  • Dauer-larva specific lipids
  • Lipids and cryptobiosis/anhydrobiosis, life without water
