The Maxwell lab is investigating the role of the mitochondrion in a time-nested set of responses to environmental change from stress-sensing to adaptation. The research program employs a range of molecular, genetic and physiological approaches and focuses on the model single-cell eukaryote Chlamydomonas. Research on Chlamydomonas is of fundamental interest as it sheds light on the last common ancestor of animals and plants.
