Danielle Grotjahn

Scripps Research assistant professor Danielle Grotjahn, PhD, received a Baxter Young Investigator Award and $100,000 to support her research. In her lab, Grotjahn studies how mitochondria change shape in response to different stressors. By uncovering the cellular stress pathways involved in mitochondrial remodeling, she and her team are shining light on the different mechanisms that contribute to mitochondrial dysfunction, including those involved in neurodegenerative diseases.
