Scientific summary

 -    signal transduction and metabolism of inositol lipids, mainly in activated platelets. Role of thrombin, PAF-acether, ADP and concanavalin A ; role of protein phosphorylation and of phospholipids in organizing signal transduction particles and their relationships with cytoskeleton reorganization..

-     signal transduction during organ / cell cold preservation,

-     implications of coagulation proteases and their inhibition for kidney grafting, design of new preservation solutions and protocols for organ transplantation, potential use of several stem cell-lines for organ transplantation.
