Using Drosophila (fruit fly), we aim to discover cellular and molecular mechanisms how metabolic dysfunctions cause human diseases including neurological diseases and cancer. We utilize variety of approaches including genetics, metabolomics, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology as well as confocal and electron microscopy.
