Biography
Liza Pon studied mitochondrial function in steroid hormone biosynthesis as a predoctoral student in the laboratory of N.R. Orme-Johnson at Tufts University (1982-1987). As an NRSA Postdoctoral Fellow with Gottfried Schatz at the University of Basel, she studied protein import into mitochondria (1987-1990). Dr. Pon established her own laboratory in 1990 at Columbia University, where she is currently Professor of Pathology and Cell Biology and the Institute of Human Nutrition, and Director of the Confocal and Specialized Microscopy Shared Resource. The focal point of her research is organelle quality control, interaction of mitochondria with the cytoskeleton and other organelles, and how these processes affect cellular fitness and lifespan.
