DPhil student

I am a first year DPhil student in the group of Dr Jagdeep Nanchahal. 

My project involves investigating whether the administration of an endogenous molecule can enhance regeneration of fatty liver disease, specifically in the context of Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease(NAFLD/ Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). To investigate this I have been generating stem-cell derived liver organoids and treating them with fatty acids to generate a 3D model of NAFLD/NASH and test this compound.

I have really enjoyed my project and time in Oxford so far and feel very fortunate to have access to such advanced technologies and techniques to investigate my project, as well as to have all the excellent researchers train me and help troubleshoot problems.
