My group focuses on understanding cell signaling pathways primarily linked with the ubiquitin and autophagy systems and frequently altered in diseases, including neurodegenerative disease. To this end, we combine cell biological, genome engineering (CRISPR), and biochemical approaches to provide new insights into mechanisms regulating various aspects of cellular homeostasis. Central to our research efforts, we employ and develop multiple quantitative proteomics workflows to examine how flux in signaling systems (e.g., phosphorylation, ubiquitylation, protein translation, degradation, and trafficking) is altered in response to perturbations or disease mutations.
