Our research is focused on finding molecular mechanisms linking metabolism and cellular signaling pathways in experimentally challenging and topical settings, such as in vivo stem cell populations. The Mattila lab is driven by curiosity, and we work hard to satisfy our craving for data, eventually (hopefully) leading to a better understanding of biological processes in complex systems. As an in vivo model for metabolic and physiological processes, we use the ever so fascinating fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Scientists in the Mattila lab are playful, sarcastic and empathetic. We work for the love of science and for the excitement of making discoveries!
