Mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles that constantly fuse and divide. We are also interested in determining the role and regulation of mitochondrial dynamics. In addition, we are studying the functional significance of mitochondrial morphology at the cellular and organismal level. To that end, we are again using C. elegans as a model and various state of the art experimental approaches.
