The interest of Eisenbach’s lab is in navigation mechanisms of cells, focusing on those of bacterial and sperm cells. The topics studied are:

  1. Molecular mechanisms of signal transduction in bacterial chemotaxis, using Escherichia coli as a model system.
  2. Mechanism of function of the “gearbox” of the bacterial flagellar motor.
  3. Physiological and molecular mechanisms of mammalian sperm chemotaxis and thermotaxis.
