Sandra K. Lemmon, Ph.D.
- Director, MD/PhD Program
- Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology
Dr. Lemmon's laboratory is interested in the sorting and transport of proteins along the endocytic and secretory pathways. She has studied the function of clathrin and its adaptors in membrane traffic and phosphoregulation of endocytosis. She uses molecular genetics and live cell imaging of XFP-tagged proteins in the budding yeast model system to study mechanisms of endocytosis, biogenesis of the lysosome/vacuole, autophagy and transport between the ER and Golgi.
