Understanding the integration of metabolism and cellular signaling in the onset of Alzheimer disease and cancer.
Aging cells change their metabolic rates, vesicular trafficking and signaling – all of these factors contribute to the onset and progression of human diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or cancer.
We use mouse models and cellular reprogramming techniques to model human diseases in a cell culture dish. We generate iPSC-derived or fibroblast-derived human neurons to study metabolic control of stemness, differentiation, proliferation and degeneration.
