Adam is a fifth-year graduate student in the Molecular and Cell Biology Program. His work focuses on the study of the genetics of human mitochondria, specifically how mitochondrial heteroplasmy relates to disease. Some drugs used in the treatment of related disease, such as HIV, also cause mitochondrial damage. Adam's work takes a novel perspective in its study of the effects of HIV drugs on the mitochondrial genome and observed development of heteroplasmy over time.
