Brief description I am an immunochemist-cell biologist investigating the involvement endosomes and lysosomes in different disease states. A primary focus has been on the group of diseases called lysosomal storage disorders where early diagnostic and effective treatment strategies have been and continue to be developed. Due to the multi-functionality of endosomes and lysosomes, these critical organelles are also involved in the pathology caused by other major diseases like bacterial infection and cancer, and this is being actively investigated.
