Dr Prinz completed his Ph.D at Harvard University in 1996. His lab studies organelle biogenesis in the model organism S. cerevisiae with a combination of biochemical, genetic, and imaging approaches. Three projects in his lab include the following:
- Intracellular lipid trafficking
- ER-shaping proteins
- Formation and function of organelle contact sites
Defects in lipid metabolism and organelle biogenesis are associated with numerous diseases. Gaining insight into the basic processes in cells will help us understand how defects in them contribute to human disease.
