Michael Wolfgang

Research Interests

The Wolfgang laboratory studies the role and regulation of cellular and organismal metabolism.  The research in the Wolfgang laboratory utilizes biochemistry and molecular genetics to understand the molecular mechanisms used to sense and respond to nutritional/metabolic cues.  We are particularly interested in deciphering the roles of unexplored metabolic enzymes/pathways and determining novel roles of cannonical metabolic pathways in under-explored cells and tissues.
