Cryo-Electron Microscopy and Tomography

We use it to advance our understanding of the structure of the mitochondria-ER contacts

Cell Culture

We use it to study the proteins involved in mitochondria-ER contacts biogenesis

Confocal Microscopy

We use it to localize proteins and and mRNAs, and to follow their intracellular trafficking

RNA Sequencing

We use it to discover mitochondria-ER contacts change in shape during metabolic shifts

Molecular Biology

We use it to characterize the function of novel proteins involved in mitochondria-ER assembly
