Home: Overview

 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 recruiting graduate students for 2022-2023 to join our team. If you're interested in cross-disciplinary research tackling the mechanisms of autophagy please reach out about a rotation.
