Yan Burelle  of the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences was renewed as the University Research Chair in Integrative Mitochondrial Biology


Professor Yan Burelle aims to better understand the complex mechanisms linking mitochondrial biology to health and the development of diseases, including cardiomyopathies and skeletal muscle disorders. Mitochondria generate most of a cell’s supply of chemical energy; understanding their role in determining the fate of stem cells and their ability to repair  is of great importance to the field of regenerative medicine.
