Karpac, Jason Assistant Professor


The Karpac Lab is broadly interested in the origins of ancient adaptive signaling networks that: (I) direct energy homeostasis, and (II) subsequently drive the aging process. We primarily use the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as a genetic model to investigate the function and integration of signaling networks at multiple levels of biological organization: from molecules, to cells and tissues, to inter-organ communication, to organismal physiology and aging.
