My lab works on developing novel preclinical models to study normal human physiology and disease states, with a particular focus on cytochrome P450 enzymes and their role in endobiotic/xenobiotic metabolism. Specific areas include the heritable ocular disease, Bietti’s Crystalline Dystrophy, derivation of functionally competent cell types from human pluripotent stem cells and development of a human kidney microphysiological system or “organ-on-a-chip”.
