  • David Moore
    • 2:30 pm
    • Beckman Institute Room 1025-Auditorium

    The liver is crucial for maintaining whole body energy balance. Dr. Moore's lab found FXR and PPARα also regulate processes that are not related to metabolic pathways but are central to liver energy balance. Dr. Moore's presentation will focus on the previously described roles of FXR and PPARα in control of autophagy and recent results on control of liver secretome.
