Research Interests: I am a laboratory scientist studying human inflammatory liver diseases, including hepatitis B/C, hepatitis B/C and HIV co-infection, and fatty liver disease in humanized mouse models reconstituted with autologous human liver cells and immune system. We primarily focus on the role of human monocyte/macrophage activation in the development of chronic liver inflammation and fibrosis/cirrhosis.
Ongoing Research Studies:
- Investigating the role of monocyte/macrophage activation in hepatitis B/C and HIV co-infection in humanized mouse and cell culture models.
- Investigating the nexus between monocyte/macrophage activation and gut microbiota dysbiosis in fatty liver disease in humanized mouse models.
- Collaboration with Dr. Alex Soto-Gutierrez, developing “improved” humanized mouse models with human liver and immune system using iPS cell technologies.
