Faculty Spotlight - Dr. Juliane Beier

Dr. Beier's research focus is on environmental vinyl chloride exposure in the context of existing underlying liver disease.  Her findings indicate that indeed vinyl chloride will exacerbate liver damage caused by another factor.  This work shifts the paradigm of current risk assessment for not only this compound, but any other environmental agent that may potentially damage the liver.
