My research focuses on attenuating metabolic dysfunction after traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). Specifically, our lab has previously shown that SCI leads to chronic liver pathology and development of metabolic syndrome. These comorbidities are common in the SCI patient population and may contribute to their reduced quality of life and prognosis. The goal of my research is to begin understanding the mechanisms that cause post-SCI liver dysfunction and metabolic syndrome and assess therapeutic strategies aimed to prevent these conditions.
