Caryn Outten Group Site

Our research group studies how cells regulate iron homeostasis and redox balance at the cellular and molecular level using yeasts as model systems. We leverage a variety of biochemical, molecular biology, and cell biology techniques that span the fields of bioinorganic chemistry, redox biochemistry, and mitochondrial function and physiology.  Our group welcomes enthusiastic and curious scientists who embrace our differences in background, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation and/or protected veteran status.
