1) Using cells extracted from mice, investigation is carried out on the effect of drugs on cerebral ventricle ependymal cell ciliary beating and on oocyte CA2+ oscillations. 2) Investigation is carried out on the transport of sodium ions across the alveolar epithelium, and changes during inflammation.
