We are a part of the University of Louisville Department of Biology.

Understanding the principles that govern life under extreme conditions will greatly enhance our ability to preserve clinical important cellular materials and help us to better understand and treat diseases that involve mitochondrial dysfunctions. Student training forms the core of my research program.


Undergraduate and graduate students who would like to work in my laboratory should share my fascination with 'life at the limits' and 'lessons from nature' and are welcome to contact me about current research opportunities.
