As part of the Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center at UCSD, the lab has helped hundreds of patients with mitochondrial and metabolic concerns over the last 20 years...
The Naviaux Laboratory is devoted to exploring new perspectives in chronic diseases that have not been traditionally associated with genetics and metabolism. These discoveries have grown naturally from the care, diagnosis, treatment, and research to help children with mitochondrial disease. The lab has recently expanded to the study of several neurologic, psychiatric, and autoimmune disorders. These include Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Major and Bipolar Depression, and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.
