Rush’s research uses a comparative approach to examine the physiological and biochemical response of organisms to stressors. Specifically, Rush looks at aerobic and anaerobic pathways of metabolism in response to stress, and their implications for mitochondrial respiration. Currently, the focus of his research is to examine how acetylation and cellular redox status regulate mitochondrial metabolism and components of the electron transport system.
