Biography

Dr. A. Holterman is Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics, a practicing pediatric surgeon and a surgeon scientist. She is a member of elite academic surgical societies such as the Society of University Surgeons and the American Surgical Association. Her research interests on the liver epithelial cells (hepatocytes and biliary epithelial cells) gene regulation during cholestatic liver disease in animal models have been funded by NIH-NIDDK grants. These basic science interests have taken her to the translational research of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Diseases in severely obese adolescents, and pediatric cholestatic liver disease. She is widely published on topics related to mechanisms of hepatic cholestasis and pediatric clinical liver diseases. As international guest speakers, she established wide professional collaborations with clinicians and investigators in Asia and India. She has published over 40 peer-reviewed manuscripts, book chapters, is on the editorial board of Gastrointestinal Journals including the World Jr of Hepatology, the International Scholarly Research Network-Nutrition, and is the Lead Editor for a future special issue in the International Journal of Hepatology on Biliary Atresia: Current Molecular Concepts for Future Research and Treatment.Dr. A.
