    Research Interests

    Dr. Schwartz's laboratory is focused on the cell and molecular biology of intracellular protein targeting and degradation.  He is studying the role of protein processing and degradation within the endosomal/lysosomal pathway and in the cytoplasm. A second area is the cell and molecular biology of receptor-mediated endocytosis and its regulation.
