  • My main project aims at elucidating the liver-adipose tissues crosstalk in
    non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD) in the hope to better understand
    the diseases and thus facilitate drug testing. I am also working on drug
    sorption on common polymers used in cell cultures, with the aim to
    demonstrate that toxicity testing outcome may be severely biased by the
    choice of culture vessels. Previously, I have worked on sensitive and
    selective glucose sensor development to dissect insulin contribution on
    glucose consumption in the human liver.
