Ragusa Lab | Dartmouth College

We are exploring the molecular mechanisms of selective autophagy, a catabolic cellular process which targets specific cytosolic material for degradation in the lysosome. We use a diverse set of techniques including X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, biochemistry and cell biology.

We are actively accepting in person and virtual rotation students for 2021-2022 to join our team.
