Eric A. Shoubridge Molecular Neurogeneticist
Eric Shoubridge’s laboratory focuses on the molecular genetics and cell biology of mitochondrial encephelomyopathies, diseases that result from deficiencies in the mitochondrial respiratory chain. His lab is also developing systems to transform mammalian mitochondria to create models of the human diseases. Shoubridge is using primary patient cell cultures and animal models to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying these diseases and to identify new nuclear gene defects.
