The Pacak laboratory investigates mechanisms that lead to mitochondrial dysfunction in a variety of disease settings using differentiated patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), mouse models, and adeno-associated virus (AAV) mediated gene delivery systems.
The Pacak laboratory is focused on identifying common mechanisms of disease related to mitochondrial function that can be augmented through gene therapies. The lab uses differentiated iPSCs and a variety of in vivo models to pursue these investigations.
