Research interests

 

- Physiology and pathophysiology of the enterohepatic circulation in humans and experimental animals: hepatic and intestinal transport systems, mechanisms of bile formation and cholestasis, (patho)physiology of biliary lipid secretion, metabolic control by bile acids via newly identified signaling cascades

- Hepatic lipid metabolism in humans and experimental animals: lipoprotein assembly and secretion, causes and consequences of hepatic steatosis, interactions between carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, inborn errors of metabolism, inflammatory pathways, role of nuclear receptors (LXR, CHREBP)

- Regulation of cholesterol synthesis and trafficking: transcription factors and nuclear receptors (SREBP/PPAR/FXR/LXR) and transporter proteins, perinatal development, metabolic programming, application of stable isotope approaches

- Quantification of metabolic fluxes by stable isotope procedures
