There are currently three projects in the lab: The first project is to characterize the role of Sestrins in aging-related physiological contexts. The second project is to identify and characterize novel components involved in autophagy-mediated protection of aging and age-associated diseases. The last project is to understand stress-induced changes of the mRNA transcriptome at subcellular and single cell resolution. Within the context of these lab projects, trainees are encouraged to independently pursue what they are interested in and familiar with.
