The Balbach lab is aiming to understand how cells adapt their metabolism to new energy requirements. Although adjusting to new metabolic conditions is a general task many cell types have to master, the underlying molecular mechanisms are not well understood. The current focus lies on the male gamete, the sperm cell.
