Iron and oxygen takes part in multitude of physiological reactions in order to sustain life across the species. Alterations of iron and oxygen homeostasis may lead to pathogenic conditions like cancer, aging, cardiovascular disease, neuronal disease, diabetes and infection related immunity. In the laboratory we are currently investigating the influence of iron and oxygen homeostasis on the development of diseases like insulin resistance related disorders, Parkinson disease, as well as, role of iron in infection of intracellular pathogens like Leishmania and role of iron in drug resistance in Candida.
