Research focus

Unraveling the heterogeneity and functions of (liver) macrophages in context of a disturbed gut-liver axis in chronic liver disease.
The specific project I primarily worked on is in context of primary sclerosing cholangitis and related ulcerative colitis and thus not cancer related. The Liver Research Center Ghent also focuses on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and I have contributed to some extent to research on HCC.
