Researchers have gained more knowledge about altered metabolism as a driving force in cancer cells; however, more research and insights are needed. Our lab aims to uncover the molecular details responsible for altered cancer cell metabolism. To date, we have characterized two important mitochondrial phosphatases and explored their roles in apoptosis and chemosensitivity. Our findings have led us to experiments surrounding cardiolipin, a phospholipid that serves many important functions in maintaining mitochondrial health.
