Branislav Radović

Branislav Radović is is a molecular biologist and PD at the Molecular Biology and Biochemistry of the Medical University of Graz.

Research interests:

His main research interest is focused on lysosomal lipid degradation and the role of autophagy (lipophagy) in energy homeostasis. He generates mouse models with cell- and tissue-specific autophagy deficiency and investigates the consequences on lipid metabolism. He has recently explored the functional role of lysosomal acid lipase in hepatic TG homeostasis and VLDL secretion. In addition, he is very much interested in macrophage function of mutant mouse models.
