JAMES OLZMANN, PH.D.

Olzmann investigates the molecular mechanisms that govern cellular lipid homeostasis. His work is advancing our understanding of the biogenesis, regulation, and functions of neutral lipid storage organelles called lipid droplets. He is interested in leveraging systems-biology approaches to uncover how cells protect themselves from lipotoxic damage, which could lead to novel therapeutic strategies to ameliorate degenerative conditions or to combat cancer.
