Molecular mechanisms regulating mitochondrial function and their relationship to disease

Mitochondria are the engine of eukaryotic cellular metabolism. Mitochondria sustain cells with a continuous supply of ATP, replenish metabolic intermediates, and coordinate metabolic flux with numerous aspects of cellular biology. Accordingly, mitochondrial dysfunction is a root cause of devastating diseases, including cancer, neurodegeneration, and diabetes.

The Taylor Lab is interested in the molecular mechanisms regulating mitochondrial function and their relationship to disease. Our research program is multidisciplinary, utilizing genetic, biochemical, cellular, and physiological experimental approaches.
