The main function of red blood cells is to transport oxygen from the lungs to various tissues and organs, but they are involved in a number of other process as well. Elena Kostova studies some of these other aspects. She investigates the changes that can be observed in red blood cells during storage (for transfusion purposes), immune adherence clearance (a process through which red blood cells ‘regulate’ the immune system) and in certain genetic disorders. She studies the signaling pathways involved in these changes, as well as their clinical implications.
