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.
Welcome Marisa, our newest lab member!
This summer we welcomed Marisa to the lab! She is a student in the department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology here at UCLA!
Congratulations to Ajit for receiving one of two UCLA DGSOM Junior Faculty Awards from the W. M. Keck Foundation.
