My primary research interest is to understand the molecular mechanisms of dietary fat digestion by pancreatic lipases in young children to improve fat digestion for better growth and development. My secondary research interest is to define the role of proteotoxicity in the pathophysiology of chronic pancreatitis using mutant misfolded pancreatic lipases as study model for finding potential novel therapies.
