Katrin Duvel Katrin

Current Position: Research Scientist, Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Science

Postdoctoral Fellow: 2006-2010

Research Interest:

Katrin is interested in the regulation and function of TOR signaling pathways in yeast and mammalian systems. Her current research focuses on transcriptional changes that are caused by loss of the Tsc genes and are dependent on the constitutive activation of the mTOR complex 1.

Katrin’s research is funded by a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance.
