Conor's paper on how Tetracyclines activate mitoribosome quality control is up now in EMBO reports, give it a read!
We are very excited to publish our first pre-print exploring the field of cancer immunology! Check out our story on how selective mitochondrial respiratory deficiency causes tumor immunogenicity!
We welcome a visiting student Marina to our lab who is working with us for the next 6 months! She comes to us from the lab of José Antonio Enríquez Domínguez at CNIC in Spain.
Check out the new synopsis of our latest paper and its broader implications in helping prevent and treat obesity and diabetes in the Dana-Farber news!
Make sure to read out newest paper out now in Cell Metabolism looking at the role of liver cristae and MIC19 in promoting energy expenditure locomotion by altering nucleotide metabolism!
We welcome two new members to the lab this month with Matthew Ravichandran joining us after graduating from Gordon College as our new technician and Weijia Gao joining us as a summer student from Oxford University, welcome!
Congratulations to Conor for winning the UMDF accelerators Prize! It's the labs third fellowship this month, great job Conor!
A huge congratulations to Pedro Latorre Muro for receiving the NIH Pathway to Independence Award K99/F00 from NIDDK! We are very proud of the work you've done in the lab and look forward to see what great science you produce in your own lab!
Conor Ronayne presented a great talk at the end of June at the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation's (UMDF) Mitochondrial Medicine Symposium, where he is a finalist for the UMDF accelerators Prize, well done!
Congratulations to our new postdoctoral fellow Yingjie Guo for receiving the Robert J. Weissman Fellowship from the Cancer Biology Department here at DFCI!
We welcome the latest new member of our lab, Yingjie Guo, new postdoctoral fellow joining us from Beijing!
Check out our latest paper demonstrating a novel way to sensitize BRAF-treatment resistant melanomas to HMGCR inhibitors through PGC1α suppression from Jiaxin Liang out in Nature Communications!
We welcome our newest rotation student, Josh Choe to the lab!
We welcome a new postdoctoral fellow into the lab Tom Jackson, who comes to us from Melbourne. Glad to have you join us.
Check out our new preprint now up on bioRxiv! It is a follow up to our previous Nature Metabolism paper looking at the mechanism dictating how tetracycline help promote survival in mitochondrial disease models by suppressing IRE1α.
We congratulate our graduate student Tevis for passing his Preliminary Qualifying Exam this March, well done!
Congratulations to Jee Hyung Sohn in our lab for receiving the Friends of Dana-Farber grant to help fund our research looking into novel small molecule therapies for renal cell carcinoma!
Pere Puigserver received the Outstanding Scientific Achievement from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) at its 75th Scientific Sessions June 5-9 in Boston.
New research from Yoonjin Lee in our laboratory and colleagues published in Nature identifies components of the cell cycle machinery that control glucose homeostasis. This work has strong implications for the regulatory mechanisms in metabolic diseases, aging and cancer. (Lee et al. Nature 2014).
Pere Puigserver was listed among the top researchers around the globe by Thomas Reuters, which released their 2014 list of “The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds” in June. The world’s top researchers earned their distinction by publishing the highest number of articles that rank among those most frequently cited by fellow researchers.

Pere Puigserver presented on "Mitochondrial Biogenesis Through Activation of Nuclear Signaling Proteins" at the Mitochondrial Biogenesis and Dynamics in Health Disease and Aging conference, June 16-21, 2013 in Big Sky, Montana. The conference was organized by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB).
