Calcium Signalling: Intracellular calcium dynamics is highly organized in time and space. We focus on the molecular mechanisms responsible for this organization, which allows calcium to serve as a universal second messenger. Particular emphasis is put on the role of cellular calcium signalling in health and disease.
