Molecular and Cell Biology

The goal of our laboratory is to understand the molecular mechanisms through which nutrients regulate the growth of cells and organisms. Growth control is central to the correct functioning of many cell types, and its dysregulation is implicated in diseases ranging from cancer to neurodegeneration.  We are interested in identifying conserved, universal mechanisms of nutrient homeostasis, but also specific nutrient sensing and quality control pathways that may be critical for the functionality of cancer cells, embryonic stem cells and neurons. To pursue our research goals, we combine state-of-the-art techniques including live cell microscopy, in vitro biochemical assays, and high throughput protein and metabolite profiling.
