Mark Li

On March 23rd, Mark Li successfully defended his PhD thesis with the title "Organelle Function in Metabolism and Immunity"

"Living organisms must constantly adapt to fluctuations in their environment to maintain homeostasis and survive.  At the cellular level, mitochondria, the ER, lysosomes, and other organelles orchestrate a myriad of  events to regulate  responses to both acute and long-term stressors.   The   overarching goal of my thesis was to understand how organelles regulate the needs of our body in health and disease."

Congratulations Mark!
