Oxygen (O2) is essential for all aerobic animals. It is required for energy production in the mitochondria, oxidative protein folding, and making reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a significant role in innate immunity and redox signaling. Yet, excessive oxygen and ROS are toxic and underlie the development of many disease conditions such as stroke, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer. Therefore, animals must regulate their oxygen metabolism at all times. However, the underlying mechanisms are still poorly understood.
Our lab uses state-of-the-art genetics, microscopy, biochemistry, and genetics to explore this question at multiple levels, from the molecular to the organismal, using the nematode C. elegans and human cells as models. We are now looking for a brilliant Ph.D. student to explore this question. So, if you are excited about this project, please get in touch with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
