Mitophagy: from genetics to biology, and back

Hélène Plun-Favreau is a Senior lecturer and a cell biologist by training. Dr Plun-Favreau’s group work on the molecular pathways associated with mitophagy and other mitochondrial dysfunctions in neurodegenerative disorders. The approaches they have undertaken require live cell microscopy and complex molecular and cellular biology, and provide a more complete picture of the pathways that play a role in the pathogenesis of neurodegeneration.
