Recently, I developed an interest in the role of fatty acids and CD36 in regulation of calcium currents in hepatocytes and stellate cells. I will explore the role of fatty acids in regulation of calcium and its impact on signal transduction and hepatocyte function.    My long-term research goal is to establish an independent research program that characterizes the molecular mechanisms involved in fatty-acid-sensing and their implications in health and disease.
