A/Pr Aleksandra Filipovska
Brief description Mitochondria are microscopic powerplants that produce most of the energy in cells. Genes that make mitochondrial proteins must work properly to make the energy our bodies require for health. Defects in the expression of mitochondrial genes cause debilitating diseases for which there are no cures currently. A/Prof Filipovska will use new technologies to understand how these mutations cause disease and develop therapeutics for treatments of diseases caused by defects in mitochondrial genes.
