Our Research Approach
Gozuacik Lab focuses on the discovery and study of novel molecules (i.e. proteins, RNAs, metabolites), signals and signaling pathways regulating cellular stress and death responses, and especially autophagy. These basic discoveries lead to a better understanding of the role of autophagy in health and disease (e.g. Cancer, degenerative diseases), and allow development of novel diagnosis, follow-up and treatment strategies.
