Research in the Wang Lab focuses on the biogenesis, function, and defects of the Golgi in diseases. The Golgi apparatus is a central membrane organelle for protein trafficking and secretion in all eukaryotic cells. A unique feature of this organelle is a stack of flattened cisternae. Our research aims to understand how this structure is formed, why its formation is important for Golgi function under normal conditions, and how the Golgi becomes defective in its structure and function under stress or disease conditions. The work will provide a basic understanding of Golgi function in protein trafficking, inheritance during the cell cycle, and pathology in diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
