About Raj Gopal

I am a Dana Farber fellow doing a post-doc in the lab of Dr. Vamsi Mootha. I am interested in cancer metabolism. Specifically, I am studying the role mitochondria play in oncogenesis and chemotherapeutic resistance. To do this, I am studing fundamental aspects of mitochondrial biology in various tumor types. Furthermore, I am attempting to develop novel chemotherapeutics that work to target aspects of mitochondrial biology that are crucial for cancer cells.
