Our laboratory works on sphingolipids, important membrane components. We focus on two main areas:
(i) sphingolipid synthesis and signaling, particularly of ceramide, and (ii) sphingolipid storage diseases, with an emphasis on mechanistic understanding of disease pathology and also on novel therapeutic approaches.
