    Research Summary:
    Reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by mitochondria cause oxidative damage that impairs the ability of mitochondria to make ATP and to carry out their metabolic functions. They may participate also in cellular redox signalling pathways. One impor... Read more

    Research Summary:
    NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase is one of the largest enzymes in the cell. It is a major contributor of the proton motive force in the mitochondria and is also a major source of reactive oxygen species. Our lab focusses on understanding how the redox ... Read more
