We are interested in understanding how cells handle energy and stress for homeostasis, growth and survival. Coordinate utility of cellular energy is of fundamental importance, and many human diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases, are affected by alterations in this process. We are particularly interested in energy- and nutrient-sensing mechanisms in cells via mTOR, and how the pathways regulate protein homeostasis.
