Two broad research questions guide work in the lab:
1. What are the physiologic functions and mechanisms of regulation / action of uncoupling proteins?
2. What are the mechanisms by which mitochondrial energy conversion couples to the regulation of cellular signaling pathways?

Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a faculty member whose research interests match your own, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
