    technology to examine how cells regulate their metabolism in disease conditions Because tumors are often cut off from an organism s blood supply cancer cells frequently lack the nutrients available to normal cells and must alter their metabolism in order to proliferate In some cases they become dependent on certain nutrients that other cells are capable of manufacturing As a postdoc Birsoy s work on cancer cells sensitivity to glucose led to the finding that certain genetic mutations can render cancer cells vulnerable to drugs known as biguanides which are used to treat diabetes He plans to build on this work by mapping out cancer cell dependencies on other nutrients such as amino acids and lipids while simultaneously looking for opportunities to exploit them for cancer therapy Birsoy s second areas of focus mitochondrial disorders occur when these energy generating organelles within cells don t work properly a situation which may affect multiple systems within the body producing neurological and muscular problems Current treatments are largely limited to managing the symptoms rather than addressing the cause of the disease Birsoy plans to investigate how specific mitochondrial dysfunctions affect cellular metabolism and so produce various symptoms The third area of focus for the Birsoy lab will be rare genetic disorders that result in metabolic errors in which metabolites accumulate to toxic levels In organic acidurias for example patients are unable to break down amino acids which build up in blood and are excreted in urine These conditions can produce symptoms such as neurological damage developmental delay lethargy and vomiting and can lead to death Birsoy aims to better understand the mechanisms by which metabolites such as amino acids and lipids damage specific organs By using genetic tools to address biochemical questions within cells Kivanc brings with him a unique perspective on
