Dr. Paul Monga and Dr. Aaron Bell publish in GE Liver on "Elimination of Wnt secretion from stellate cells is dispensable for zonation and development of liver fibrosis following hepatobiliary injury"
Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Gavin Arteel
Dr. Arteel’s research focuses on the interaction between hepatotoxicants (e.g., arsenic) and lifestyle choices (e.g., obesity and alcohol) in the initiation and progression of chronic liver diseases. His current research foci are based on the understanding that transitional changes to the ECM proteome (i.e., “matrisome”) play an underappreciated role in the initiation and progression of liver disease. He is developing computational tools to attempt to predict mechanism(s) and to develop biomarkers (or surrogate biomarkers) for use in the clinics.
