Welcome to the Cuervo Lab!
We are a cell biology lab interested in how proteins are targeted to lysosomes (AUTOPHAGY)
for their degradation and why this process is impaired during aging and age-related disorders..
PhD and MD/PhD students are welcome to rotate in our lab!!!
You will get:
Experience in techniques in cell-biology, molecular biology and biochemistry (organelle isolation, confocal immunofluorescence, electron microscopy, tissue culture, PCR, DNA isolation and handling, point directed mutagenesis, northern blot, electrophoresis, chromatography, protein expression and purification.....
Background in intracellular protein trafficking, protein degradation, biology of aging, lysosomal storage diseases, neurodegenerative diseases....
