Welcome to the Sancak Lab

By unraveling the pathways that are fundamental to mitochondrial biology, signaling, and metabolism, we hope to advance our understanding of the basic biology of mitochondria, and implicate the mitochondrial calcium uniporter as a new therapeutic target for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of diseases associated with abnormal calcium homeostasis

Our Mission:

To use basic science to advance diagnosis, investigation, and treatment of common and rare diseases with mitochondrial involvement.
