Work in the Hanson lab addresses fundamental questions about how cells regulate the structure and organization of their membranes

Work in the Hanson lab addresses fundamental questions about how cells regulate the structure
and organization of their membranes. We use biochemical, cellular, and imaging approaches to
study molecular reactions that control trafficking and organelle function with a particular interest
in how the ESCRT machinery acts to remodel and repair membranes. Available projects are
relevant to understanding the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders, infectious
disease, cancer and more.
