Will is studying stress-induced lipid droplet formation.
Niko is investigating mitochondrial fusion/fission dynamics in lung cancer cells.
Chris received both his B.S. (2013) and M.S. (2015) in Biology from SUNY Brockport. He is currently investigating how DNA damage and other cellular stresses impact organelle dynamics and how these processes contribute to tumor growth.
Dane received his B.S. in Biology from the University of Michigan in 2014. He is using high-throughput, high-content imaging to identify new signaling pathways that regulate mitochondrial dynamics.
Salma received both her B.S. (2011) and M.S. (2012) in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh. She is currently using patient-derived xenografts to explore how mitochondrial heterogeneity contributes to pancreatic tumor growth.
Tuyet is studying the role of RalA in starvation induced lipid droplet formation.
