My group focuses in understanding molecular basis of mitochondrial disorders, and to use that knowledge to develop treatment. Our ambitious aim is to reveal the mechanisms of tissue-specificity of mitochondrial dysfunction, utilizing the specific disease models created in the laboratory, and to design targeted intervention for the currently incurable group of disorders of adults and children.
