The home of the WrappER

a wrapping-type of Endoplasmic Reticulum

WELCOME !

We are a group of talented cellular and molecular biologists who want to understand how inter-organelle contacts regulate lipid biology in health & disease.

We discovered the wrappER, a wrapping-type of rough-ER that wraps around most of the mitochondria and peroxisomes of the hepatocyte, the main cell of the liver.
