Research 

We study how autophagy is regulated and functions in animals. We use Drosophila as a model to study autophagy, and our work focuses on understanding how autophagy functions in different cells and tissues, as well as under different types of cell stress.

Rotation Projects

Current projects are focused on understanding how autophagy is regulated and functions in the context of cell survival and cell death, the identification of novel factors and pathways that regulate autophagy in different cell contexts, how specific cargoes are selected for clearance by autophagy, and the function of autophagy in models of disease.

Positions available

Motivated students and postdoctoral associates are encouraged to apply.  Contact Dr. Baehrecke
