Research Interests

Dr. Ferguson’s primary research interest is focused on role of intermediary metabolism in immune cells during the development and progression of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).  NASH is a common liver disease, and macrophages, which are cells of the immune system, play a pivotal role in disease progression. Dr. Ferguson’s research will contribute to our understanding of macrophage function and NASH progression to highlight the clinical utility of targeting these cells in NASH. Ultimately, our studies may lead to new therapeutic options that will improve patient health and quality of life.
