Expertise and Research Interests

My laboratory uses structural biology in combination with biochemical approaches to study the structure and function of mitochondrial transcription machinery. We are interested in deciphering molecular mechanisms of transcription initiation, elongation, termination and anti-termination, as well as replication primer synthesis by mitochondrial RNA polymerase. We also aim to  understand the interplay between transcription and replication machineries in mitochondria of normal and cancer cells.
