Title: TBA

Research

The Mattis Lab is focused on identifying molecular mechanisms in normal human liver function as well as understanding complex diseases such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). In order to develop better models of this disease process we are using human induced pluripotent stem cells that are then differentiated to human hepatocyte like cells (iPSC-derived hepatocytes). Using a combination of these human derived in vitro hepatocyte models and mouse model systems we strive to develop an improved understanding of this disease.

In addition we have small projects to characterize cystic fibrosis liver disease, hepatocellular carcinoma, and cholangiocarcinoma. Located in the UCSF Department of Pathology, we make use of both collaborative efforts and IRB approved access to archived and fresh human tissue.
