Areas of Interest

Anatomic Pathology / Liver metabolism and mechanisms of hepatic injury.

My research focuses on examining alterations in hepatic biotransformation enzymes and their influence on hepatic function. Specific areas of interest include investigating the pathogenesis of drug or toxin-induced liver injury, particularly the role of metabolic idiosyncrasies in liver disease.
