Project 04
Structural studies on extracellular adhesion GPCR signaling

Project 05
The role of the adhesion G protein-coupled receptor GPR133/ADGRD1 in the mechano-sensitive tissues heart and bone

Project 06
VLGR1 signaling at focal adhesions and ICD release as a noncanonical signaling pathway of aGPCRs

Project 07
