The Farese & Walther Lab
Biology of Cellular Energy Metabolism
We study how cells store metabolic energy as TGs in organelles called lipid droplets (LDs). Specifically, we study the molecular basis for how cells synthesize TGs, how cells form LDs, how proteins target to LDs, and how TGs are utilized to meet energetic demands.

Lysosomal Lipid Metabolism and Neurodegeneration
We study metabolism of the endo-lysosomal system, focusing on how it regulates the metabolism of membrane lipids, in particular sphingolipids.
