My dissertation/thesis focused on hydrazine hepatotoxicity, a common manifestation of isoniazed therapy. A pathological hallmark of hydrazine hepatotoxicity in rodents is fatty liver (steatosis). The project has been successful in clarifying mechanisms involved in hepatic lipid accumulation including the involvement of PPARalpha, a novel mechanism.
I currently work as a research associate on Alzheimer's disease projects.
