Researchers in the Agathocleous lab are studying how metabolites impact the stem cells genome and how the metabolism of cancer cells, and normal stem cells that give rise to cancers, compare.
The DeBerardinis lab is interested in the role of altered metabolic states in human diseases, particularly pediatric inborn errors of metabolism and cancer.
The Ge lab is interested in studying the interactions between brain vasculature (blood vessels) and the nervous system (glial cells and neurons).
The Hoxhaj lab is interested in studying the molecular mechanisms that control cellular metabolism, particularly in cancer.
The McBrayer Lab seeks to discover metabolic mechanisms that promote brain tumor development and develop strategies to exploit altered metabolism for cancer therapy.
Research in the Mishra lab is focused on mapping how the mitochondria are embedded into normal cellular function.
The Morrison Lab studies mechanisms that regulate stem cell function in adult tissues and the ways in which those mechanisms get hijacked by cancer cells to enable tumor formation.
The Xu lab is focuses on blood cell development and how abnormalities can cause cancers such as childhood leukemia.
The Zhu laboratory is interested in understanding the relationship between injury, regeneration, and cancer.
