Our research group studies how cells regulate iron homeostasis and redox balance at the cellular and molecular level using Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast) as a model system. We use a variety of biochemical, molecular biology, and cell biology techniques that span the fields of bioinorganic chemistry, redox biochemistry, and mitochondrial function and physiology.
