Our research focuses on mitochondrial biogenesis, in particular the transcriptional regulation of nuclear encoded mitochondrial genes. Our aim is to understand how mitochondrial biogenesis mediates adaptation to cellular stress under pathological conditions, including neurodegenerative disease, myopathies and and cancer. To this aim we apply live cell imaging, molecular biology and bioinformatic approaches on cellular and animal models.
