Personal profile

Research Interests

Clinically my area of focus is in pediatric liver disease and liver transplantation. I am passionate about improving care for our patients and seek to use my research findings to advance patient care.

My primary interest in pediatric liver disease and liver transplantation is the immune mechanism of neonatal liver disease, in particular gestational alloimmune liver disease (GALD) and biliary atresia. Through clinical research on outcomes in GALD and laboratory research on the mechanism of disease, our group has made a significant impact that has advanced the care of infants and mothers affected by GALD. Currently, my active area of research is on the immune pathogenesis of biliary atresia, the leading cause of pediatric liver transplantation. I am investigating the role of macrophages in progressive liver injury in biliary atresia after diagnosis, with the ultimate goal to identify novel treatment strategies to improve patient outcomes.

My current basic science research is directed at gaining a deeper understanding of the immune mechanism of biliary atresia, in particular the role of macrophages in disease progression after diagnosis with the goal to develop new treatment strategies that will improve patient outcomes.
