The aim of STEPS is to understand the molecular interactions leading to the formation of a functional phagocytic synapse and macrophage activation, two crucial events in inflammatory responses and immunity. Specifically, we will focus on three distinct aspects linking immunology to cell biology: the formation of dynamic platforms for pathogen recognitions; signaling compartimentalization at the plasma membrane; vesicle and organelle trafficking. These mechanisms will be analized in both physiological and phatological contest
