Our lab is interested in the regulation of apoptosis by the glycolytic metabolism, and its aplication to cancer therapy. In particular, we are studying how inhibition of glycolysis triggers apoptosis and autophagy in tumors, and how inhibitors of glucose uptake sensitize tumor cells to chemotherapy. Moreover, we are studying the role of autophagy and endoplasmic reticulum stress in apoptosis and necrosis induced by glucose deprivation and ischemia.
