This project will take a biochemistry approach to studying enzyme activity
and expression in the liver, and how they are modified by diseases such
as obesity, diabetes, cirrhosis, cholestasis, bile duct obstruction, and
dyslipidemia. Student will work directly with the PI and with a senior
graduate student. Ability to do careful labwork is needed. Interest in
enzyme action is helpful, but not required. Additional opportunity for
computer modeling of protein action available.
