Welcome to Ding group

Our research has been focused on biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters and redox regulation of iron-sulfur proteins.  Iron-sulfur clusters are ubiquitous, and deficiency of iron-sulfur clusters has been associated with many human diseases including cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancers. By combining molecular biology and biophysics tools, we intend to illustrate dynamic metabolism of iron-sulfur proteins in response to cellular oxidative and nitrosative stresses in bacteria and mammalian cells.

Currently, we are looking for two graduate students who will participate in the research projects supported by NIH and American Heart Association. If you are interested in these positions, please send an email to hding@lsu.edu.
