Our current interests are:

1. Mechanisms regulating lysosomal calcium ion (Ca2+) and zinc ion (Zn2+) homeostasis in health and disease
2. Use of superparamagnetic ferrofluid to purify lysosomes
3. Function of the NPC1 protein as a lysosomal RND multi-substrate permease and it's role in tuberculosis
4. Sterol precursor inhibition of the NPC1 protein as a therapeutic target for the sterol biosynthetic disease Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome
5. Role of lysosomal dysfunction in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease
6. Mechanisms of pathogenesis and therapy development for soluble lysosomal protein diseases (MPS type II, NPC2, Tay-Sachs)
