Our research group studies the cellular and molecular basis of liver diseases and disorders linked to intermediate filament gene mutations. We use biochemical, cell-based and in vivo approaches to identify disease targets and to understand their function and regulation. Our major goal is to promote the discovery of pharmacological agents that can slow or halt the progression of these diseases.
