Abstract

Peroxisomes are small, membrane-bound organelles that occur in nearly all eukaryotic cells, from yeast to plants and humans. They contribute to several crucial metabolic processes, which render them indispensable to human health and development. More than 60 years of research on peroxisomes has revealed unique features of this fascinating subcellular organelle, which have often been in disagreement with existing dogmas in cell biology. In my lecture, I intend to highlight key discoveries, advancements, and trends in peroxisome research and reflect on my career as a peroxisome researcher.
