When apoptotic cell death goes wrong, the results are often cancer or autoimmune diseases. My laboratory aims to illuminate critical "black boxes" in the apoptotic pathway.



We are focusing on how the killer Bak and Bax proteins irreversibly commit cells to die, and how these proteins are regulated. Understanding this process is critical to developing new treatments that either enhance or block apoptosis in diseased cells.
