My group is interested in identifying why obese individuals are at greater risk of liver injury in the setting of trauma or surgery. My long-term goal is to understand the relationship between metabolic and immunologic processes in the liver. One potential link between these underlying mechanisms could be the peptide leptin, which can profoundly modify inflammatory and metabolic pathways.
