THE XIN JIE CHEN LABORATORY
Mitochondrial Biology and Stress Signaling, and Aging-associated Neural and Muscular Diseases
The main goal of our laboratory is to learn how mitochondrial damage causes cellular stress, and affects cell fitness and survival. We are particularly interested to know whether mitochondrial Precursor Overaccumulation Stress (mPOS), a novel cell stress mechanism that we recently discovered, contributes to cell death in aging-related degenerative diseases. We use yeast, cultured human cells and mouse models in our studies. To learn more about our research and areas of study, please visit the next pages.
