Biography

Research Interests

Dr. Khan has longstanding clinical and research interests in pediatric liver diseases. Her research focuses on cellular approaches to liver regeneration and transplantation. Dr. Khan studies mechanisms of hepatocyte regeneration in alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, the most common inherited cause of pediatric liver disease and transplantation. Her work investigates critical cellular signals for liver regeneration, including (1) bile acid signaling, and (2) the liver stem cell marker LGR5 (Leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein coupled receptor 5). Dr. Khan plans to extend these studies by developing cellular and molecular therapies for liver-based metabolic diseases.
