Research Interests

Liver diseases, mitochondria, immunocompetent ex vivo models, precision cut tissue slices, liver cancer

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.
