The Role of Mitochondrial Channels in Programmed Cell Death: This laboratory is examining the translocation of proteins across membranes. The role of mitochondrial channels in cell death is examined with electrophysiological techniques as well as a variety of additional approaches including microinjection and microsurgery of single cells, time-lapse video microscopy (fluorescence and DIC), and flow cytometry. Understanding the cell death process will facilitate development of therapies that enable activation of this cascade to control the growth of malignancies and blockade of the pathway to reduce the volume of cell death after ischemic injury, e.g., stroke or heart attack.
