  • Molecular Basis of Disease
  • Mitochondrial Calcium Regulation

Research Summary

Regulation of mitochondrial calcium signaling


Research Statement

My research focuses on clarifying the pathways and molecular mechanisms underlying mitochondrial stress and disease. Studying this basic biology helps me elucidate the basis of aging, as well as diseases including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and heritable mitochondrial disorders.
