My laboratory was closed after 35 years of operation. I continue to have an interest in all aspects of mitochondrial biology, and a second, updated edition of my book MITOCHONDRIA was published recently. Collaborations continue with laboratories at UCSD (Taylor, Perkins), at UC Irvine (Wallace) and Neuzil (Australia).
