György Csordás starts his post-doctoral fellowship with György Hajnóczky studying ER-mitochondria calcium signaling.
1986 - 1992
Joannes B. Hoek and Suresh K. Joseph bring vast bioenergetics expertise to Jefferson.
György Hajnóczky starts his post-doctoral fellowship with Andrew P. Thomas studying the coupling of calcium oscillations with mitochondrial metabolisms using single cell imaging.
The Imaging Facility is inaugurated with the arrival of one of the first BioRad Confocal & Multiphoton microscopes.
György Csordás starts his laboratory driven by an interest in the study of excitation-metabolism coupling in the heart.
Research collaborations focused on mitochondrial biology are streghthened by synergisms among the faculty members.
