One of my interests is developing ex vivo experimental models to study liver diseases and malignancies, using dynamic cultures of human precision-cut tissue slices.
My research investigates the role of mitochondria in the pathogenesis and progression of Alcohol-related liver diseases with the final aim to target these organelles for therapeutic purposes.
I am happy for individuals outside my research group (particularly early career researchers) to present at one of my (online) group meetings – please contact me if you are interested.
I would like to present at group meetings organised by individual group leads – please contact me if you have an opportunity.
