Work and interests
Jake is a clinical paediatrics registrar and his research interest is in liver fat (hepatic steatosis). He is particularly interested in genetic influences that lead to development of steatosis and the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) spectrum.
- Assess the relationships between body fat distribution, insulin resistance, and liver fat, and how this is influenced by common genetic variants
- Searching for blood tests (‘serum biomarkers’) that might be useful for predicting who may progress to more advanced liver disease
