Professor Agnieszka Chacinska is interested in biogenesis, transport and degradation of mitochondrial proteins and their failure resulting in pathologies. Her research explores links between transport of mitochondrial proteins and cellular protein homeostasis that involve crosstalk between various cellular compartments and processes such as mitochondrial import, cellular protein degradation and protein synthesis.
