I am a trained molecular biologist. I am associated with Dr. James Boyer and studied molecular mechanisms of bile formation and cholestatic liver injury. My current study is focusing on the mechanism of bile acid initiating inflammatory response in hepatocytes and therapeutic targets of cholestatic liver injury. In addition, I am also interested in using comparative genomic approach to understand the structure and function relationship of bile salt transporters characterized in humans and rodents.
