My research focus involves exploring resection-associated metabolic syndrome. Using a well-established murine model, I work with Dr. Warner’s team to elucidate mechanisms of intestinal resection-associated liver injury. Our findings of liver injury with progression to fibrosis offer a unique model system for addressing important mechanistic questions regarding gut/liver axis perturbations. These findings may serve to mitigate metabolic derangements after intestinal resection.
