MitoMetabLab Alumni


Dr. Dunham-Snary has been patiently waiting to launch this page of the lab's website! Talented trainees will be added to this section of the lab website upon graduation from Team MitoMetabLab. A number of dedicated, bright trainees have already graduated once and have chosen MitoMetabLab for their graduate studies.


Dr. Dunham-Snary looks forward to adding these students to the Hall of Fame TWICE!
