Autophagic Cell Death Survives

Abstract:   Programmed cell death plays a fundamental role in human health and disease. Apoptosis-based approaches for neurodegenerative diseases often fail to yield neuroprotection, due to non-apoptotic forms of cell death and plasticity in switching between distinctcell death pathways. A […]

Autophagy in Health and Disease

Abstract:   Autophagy is an evolutionarily-conserved catabolic process initiated by the engulfment of cytosolic components in a crescent-shaped structure, called phagophore that expands and fuses to form a closed double-membrane vesicle, the autophagosome. Autophagosomes are subsequently targeted to the lysosome/vacuole […]

Functional Nanocrystal Solids: A Modular Approach to Materials Design

Abstract: Colloidal nanocrystals can combine the advantages of crystalline inorganic semiconductors with the size-tunable electronic structure and inexpensive solution-based device fabrication[1]. Single-and multicomponent nanocrystal assemblies, also known as superlattices, provide a powerful general platform for designing two-and three-dimensional solids with […]

The role of mitochondria and sensory neurons in the longevity of C. elegans

Abstract: Many genetic factors that regulate organismal aging have been identified by using C. elegans as a model system. For example, reduced mitochondrial respiration or inhibition of sensory neurons confers longevity in C. elegans. Remarkably, these factors have been shown […]
