WHAT WE DO
Mitochondria are cellular organelles that have long been recognized for their essential role in producing ATP, the chemical form of energy required to fuel a diverse range of biochemical reactions within the cell. In the last decade or so, however, additional roles for mitochondria in a myriad of other homeostatic pathways within the cell have been identified (e.g. apoptosis, non-shivering thermogenesis, iron- sulphur cluster biogenesis, cellular copper homeostasis). We are interested in identifying and characterizing the molecular genetic mechanisms that allow mitochondria to make so many varied, and fundamental, contributions to cell biology.Our research projects »
I believe that science can be exciting, fun and indeed sexy! My goal is to create and nurture a supportive research environment in which trainees have the ability to pursue a research project of interest, and grow as scientists and individuals.Meet our lab »
I am always open to email inquiries from motivated students at either the undergraduate or postgraduate level about potential openings in the lab. I also welcome similar inquiries from postdoctoral fellows.
