A mitochondrial membrane-spanning ternary complex is a drug target for aging and Parkinson's disease

Dr. Li's research focuses on understanding brain aging and how brain disease develops as we age.  She is  specifically interested on the energy factory of the cells; mitochondrial function and kinetics.  Mitochondrial movement and clearance are critical for neuronal health and integrity. Dr. Li’s project will focus on the protein Miro; how it regulates mitochondrial function and clearance during healthy aging, and how this regulation is disrupted under pathophysiological circumstances. Her research could lead to identifying new targets for therapeutic intervention.
