The Shah Lab uses viruses and engineering principles to perturb the autophagy network, which is responsible for recycling cellular components into primary biological building blocks. Autophagy is important for many processes, including viral infection and protein production, and dysfunction of autophagy is implicated in neurodegenerative diseases and aging. The insights we gain from studying and engineering the autophagy network will be useful to many areas of biology, medicine and biotechnology. We use complementary techniques of global proteomics, genetics, high-throughput sequencing, microscopy and synthetic biology.
