The goal of our research is to understand mechanisms that regulate T cell responsiveness and how these contribute to chronic inflammation. Using novel mouse models of chronic liver disease we investigate factors that contribute to disease pathogenesis, including autoreactive T cells and intestinal microbiota. Chronic liver disease is the most common cause of hepatocellular carcinoma and we are interested in how the inflammatory microenvironment in chronically diseased liver tissue influences the development of liver cancer.
