The DSC family is excited to welcome Yoel Sitbon as its latest addition to our MCP graduate students. Yoel’s research will focus on Essential Light Chain (ELC) mutations that lead to cardiomyopathy via changes in ELC structure, and the ability of myosin to effectively interact with actin, ultimately leading to dysregulated cardiac muscle contraction. He will additionally look into mitochondrial bioenergetics, a process that is tightly regulated to meet varying metabolic demands resulting from changes in cardiac load.
Welcome to the team, Yoel !!
