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.
Anthony Continues to Rake it Up!
Congratulations to Anthony for earning a Dissertation Year Fellowship and Summer Mentored Research Fellowship. Well done!
Nataly and Andréa Join the Lab!
We’re growing! We are thrilled to welcome two new graduate students to our group — both are members of the Pharmacology home Area of UCLA’s Graduate Program in Biosciences.
