The IBAB Research Seminar Series is back! The first speaker for this academic year was Dr. Divya P. Kumar of JSS Medical College, JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research, Mysuru. Speaking on the topic ‘AATF: An emerging player in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and hepatocellular carcinoma’, Dr. Divya discussed how the apoptosis antagonizing transcription factor, i.e., AATF, regulates the pathophysiology of NAFLD and potentially, hepatocellular carcinoma. Her lab employs state-of-the-art techniques in both in vitro and in vivo systems to study AATF function and develop therapeutic strategies for the treatment of liver disease.
