About Michael A. Menze

Understanding the principles that govern life under extreme conditions will significantly enhance our ability to preserve necessary clinical biologics and help us to treat diseases that involve mitochondrial dysfunctions. Student training forms the core of my research program. Prospective undergraduate and graduate student researchers sharing my fascination with 'life at the limits' are encouraged to contact me about current research opportunities.
