Research Summary/Interests

Structural insight into the assembly and function of membrane remodeling complexes

The goal of my lab is to unravel the molecular mechanisms that control essential intracellular membrane remodeling and trafficking events, such as endo-lysosomal trafficking, apoptosis, autophagy and regulation of mitochondrial dynamics. 

Research Methods/Techniques

Titan Krios electron microscope (FEI) fitted with phase plates and a direct electron detector, we are able to solve the 3D structure of key proteins and protein complexes at atomic resolution, in the ultimate effort to identify novel drug targets.
