Xin Jie Chen
Ph.D (Université Paris-Sud)
(Molecular and Cellular Genetics)
Dr. Chen was trained as a molecular biologist in Hiroshi Fukuhara's lab at Institut Curie in Paris. He then worked with Desmond Clark-Walker (The Australian National University) and Ronald Butow (University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas) on the mechanism of mitochondrial DNA inheritance. He has a long-standing interest in the understanding of how mitochondrial damage affects cell fitness and survival, and its implications for muscular, neural and heart diseases.
Dr. Chen teaches mitochondrial genetics, stress signaling, redox biology, nutrition, metabolism, obesity, metabolic syndrome and the biology of aging.
BSc (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Arnav is interested in the mechanism of mitochondrial stress signaling and its implications for cardiac function.
MSc (University of Melbourne)
Xiaowen is experienced and multi-skilled, working with yeast, cultured human cells and mice.
BSc (SUNY Oneonta )
Nick is interested in the mechanism of mitochondrial stress signaling, cellular proteostasis and muscle aging
BSc (Mount Holyoke College)
Gargi explores the mechanisms of mitochondrial protein import stress. She is interested in identifying cellular pathways that maintain the functional competency of mitochondria under stress conditions.
Joseph V. Mauro
BSc (Binghamton University)
Joe investigates how mitochondrial stress signaling affects cardiac and metabolic health.
BSc (University of Pennsylvania)
