Our laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate the energetic and redox homeostasis in the cells of the central nervous system. As a part of the Bolaños’ Team, my aim is to understand the link between Batten disease, a neurometabolic disorder characterized by lysosomal accumulation of lipofuscins, with autophagy, specifically lipophagy.
