The Choe Lab defines pathways animals use to detect and respond to environmental stress and studies how these pathways interact with physiological processes such as stress resistance, ageing, drug resistance, growth, and reproduction. We currently study these processes in the free-living model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans using a variety of physiological, genetic, molecular, cell biology, and biochemical approaches. Stress pathways underlie adaptations to environmental stress in animals, contribute to drug resistance in parasites, and have to potential to delay aging and age-related diseases in humans.
