  • Dolores Njoku Lab

    Research in the Dolores Njoku Lab focuses on immune-mediated liver injury caused by drugs such as anti-seizure medications and antibiotics. We use an animal model to understand the pathways involved in the injury process, recognizing that this model can also uncover pathways involved with other drugs that cause similar liver injury. We hope to uncover the immunogenic epitopes, or pieces, of the proteins that trigger the autoimmune reaction and identify the key regulatory pathways involved.

    Research Areas: anesthesia, antibiotics, liver injury, liver diseases, mouse models

  • Zhiping Li Lab

    The Zhiping Li Lab focuses on the pathogenesis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and immune-mediated liver injury. Our active research focuses on the dietary modulation of gut bacteria, liver innate immune system and their regulation on tissue injury and repair. Clinical research from the lab focuses on cirrhotic ascites, liver transplant, hepatocellular carcinoma and immune-mediated liver diseases as well as endoscopic techniques and interventions.

    Research Areas: gastrointestinal system, gut bacteria, nutrition, obesity, pathogenesis, liver diseases
