We are accepting students!
Prospective graduate students should apply to the graduate program in Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology, and Physiology at Yale. You are welcome to contact Rachel beforehand to discuss your application.
Current graduate students are encouraged to contact Rachel to discuss a potential rotation in the Perry lab. In addition, please consider taking the metabolism course offered either annually or biennially (TBD), now in its second year:
CMP 580b (spring): Mitochondrial Bioenergetics and Intermediary Metabolism Instructors: Rachel Perry, Ph.D., Richard Kibbey, M.D., Ph.D.
This course presents a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of mitochondrial physiology and pathophysiology. Topics include glucose, lipid, amino acid, and cholesterol metabolism; mitochondrial bioenergetics; flux modeling; inherited and acquired metabolic disorders; and common methods used to characterize metabolism. Our goal is for students not only to be able to explain the key pathways involved in maintenance of glucose and lipid homeostasis, but also to be able to select and critically evaluate techniques commonly used in metabolism, design experiments, and interpret others’ results.
