Welcome to the Mitochondrial Metabolism and Bioenergetics Laboratory! Our group studies how energy metabolism and metabolic flexibility – the ability to switch between sugar, amino acid, and fatty acid oxidation in response to biological cues – can control cell function and fate. Ultimately, we aim to discover novel regulatory points of metabolism and develop mitochondrial proteins and pathways as therapeutic drug targets.
Krista is Leaving for Medical School!
Though we are very sad to see her go, we are happy to announce that Krista, lab manager extraordinaire and overall great human being, will be starting medical school at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. Best of luck, Krista!
