Professor of Developmental & Cell Biology and Chancellor’s Fellow, Aimee Edinger, will give a virtual presentation at UCI Homecoming about cell biology and obesity.
This session will explain how changes in the shape of the cellular powerhouses, the mitochondria, contributes to obesity. Audience members will see how a new compound that turns bean-shaped mitochondria into spaghetti-shaped tubules makes mice eating a high fat diet as svelte and metabolically healthy as mice eating normal mouse chow.
