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.
Wayne Accepts a Position in Industry!
Congratulations to Wayne on his new position as a Scientist I at Emergent Biosolutions in San Diego! He will be missed in the lab, but excited for him to share his strong work ethic, technical expertise, and sense of humor with his new colleagues.
Devanshi Graduates and Heads Back to Biotech!
Congratulations to Devanshi for graduating from UCLA a quarter early, and accepting a position at Cytokinetics, Inc. in South San Francisco, where she was previously a summer intern. It was great having you as part of the lab, even if remote due to COVID-19!
