Description:

Madesh Muniswamy, Ph.D.
Professor of Nephrology
University of Texas - San Antonio

The Muniswamy laboratory currently explores cutting-edge optical imaging-based methods to address major questions pertaining to explore the phenomenon referred as mitochondrial shape transition (MIST), a process that is independent of fission or fusion (Cell Reports 2018). With these observations, we currently are employing new pharmacologic tools to probe organellar communication and cell function. Our hope is to offer deeper insights behind inter-organellar communication that might be exploited to precisely treat various forms of disease.
