Welcome to the Gu Lab at Cornell University!

The Gu lab investigates the evolution of mitochondrial functions and the role of mtDNA mutations in aging and various diseases, including but not limited to tumor, autism and neural degenerative diseases.

We use cutting-edge techniques including super-resolution imaging, long-term time-lapse imaging, CRISPR and computational biology to investigate mitochondria in various model organisms including yeast, Drosophila, mouse, cultured human cells, and sample from patients.
