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.
