The Hariri research group employs a multi-disciplinary approach combing proteomics, lipidomics, and high-resolution imaging, with metabolic analysis as well as classical biochemistry and genetics to study the regulation and spatial organization of metabolic pathways using yeast and human cell lines. We are particularly interested in fatty acid trafficking and metabolism at organelle contact sites. We are also interested in elucidating the principles that govern the crosstalk between metabolic networks.
