Research Summary/In Plain Language

Research in Plain Language

My main research studies focus on fatty liver disease—how it develops over time, its relationship to insulin resistance and obesity, and how it responds to treatment at the molecular level.  A specific interest of mine is to determine how genetic variations affect the disease.  I am interested in learning about normal physiology and the disease process from these variations.  I am also studying how patients with fatty liver disease respond to different treatments, how treatments actually work, what makes one patient respond while another does not, and whether this can be predicted early on in treatment.
