I am currently investigating the role of cellular endocytosis, the main source of nutrient uptake in cells, in the regulation of a central cellular kinase known as the Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin Complex 1 (mTORC1). This protein complex regulates major cellular functions including protein and lipid synthesis, and it's malfunction subsequently contributes to the onset of cancer and neurodegeneration.
