Micheal Forte (Biography
Micheal Forte

The Forte lab is investigating the role of mitochondria in the overall regulation of cellular calcium (Ca2+). As local and global fluctuations in Ca2+ concentration are ubiquitous in eukaryotic cells and are the common factor in a wide array of intra- and inter-cellular signaling cascades, the relationships between mitochondrial function and Ca2+ transients is currently a subject of intense scrutiny. Using genetic approaches in mice and Drosophila, the goal is to understand the response of mitochondria to Ca2+, the pathways by which Ca2+ accumulates into mitochondria, and the potential role of mitochondrial Ca2+ in neurodegenerative disease processes.
