Research Summary

Cells have extensive quality control systems to correct various mistakes. Yet, quality control can also fail, leading to diseases such as cancer and neurodegeneration. My goal is to resolve the molecular detail of cellular quality control so we can understand 1) how cells normally stay healthy; 2) how quality control fails; and 3) how to rescue quality control failure.
