Organelle Biogenesis and Function

We study how particular organelles are created and placed within the cell. Eukaryotic cells are highly organized, with many functions isolated into separate compartments called organelles. These organelles can have very complex structures and functions themselves. Defects in particular organelles can lead to disease, and we also study ways in which cellular organization and organelle function are disrupted in order to alleviate diseases.
