We focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying Biliary atresia in humans newborns using different models. Using a novel selective biliary injury with a toxin derived from a plant we will emphases on deciphering mechanisms conferring functional heterogeneity of cholangiocytes in injury responses and how disruption of these processes can drive a biliary phenotype. We also aim to deconstruct gene-environment interactions underlying biliary diseases with the ultimate goal of conceiving and testing novel therapeutic strategies.
