Welcome!

In the Dixon Lab we are using chemical, biochemical and genetic techniques to discover and characterize new cell death pathways.  We are interested in applying this knowledge to find new ways to selectively eliminate cancer cells and preserve the viability of damaged neurons.  We recently described a novel form of oxidative, iron-dependent cell death called ferroptosis and are currently pursuing the characterization of this process from many angles.  We are also actively engaged in training the next generation of scientists at the undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral level.  We hope you enjoy learning about our exciting work and the wonderful people who make it happen.
