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.
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.
Angel and Amber Graduate from UCLA!
We are thrilled to announce that Angel and Amber are graduating from UCLA as a part of the class of 2021! Both have earned a B.S. in Biology and will continue to work in the lab over the summer.
