Dominik Schneider studied human biology at the Philipps University in Marburg. Presently, he is a doctoral student at the Institute for Cytobiology and Cytopathology. He is doing research in the field of Intracellular Transport and Unconventional Secretion of Galectin-3. Dominik Schneider is a member of the research group of Prof. Ralf Jacob.
Using TIRF microscopy, scientists have been able to take a closer look at intracellular transport processes with the example of the galactose-binding protein Galectin-3, which has been identified as a potential apical sorting receptor.
