Research Grand Rounds: Role of bile acid regulated receptors in the pathogenesis and treatment of NASH and obesity related kidney disease

Date Fri, Dec 4
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Online


This month's Research Grand Rounds features Moshe Levi, MD, Interim Dean for Research and Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology at Georgetown University. Dr. Levi will discuss "Role of bile acid regulated receptors in the pathogenesis and treatment of NASH and obesity-related kidney disease".

Dr. Moshe Levi is interim Dean for Research and, since 2017, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology at Georgetown University. Trained as a chemical engineer, physician, and nephrologist, he previously held faculty positions at UT Southwestern and U Colorado. His NIH-supported research has focused on renal, hepatic, and cardiovascular complications of obesity, diabetes, and aging; regulation of mineral metabolism; nuclear and G- protein-coupled receptor mechanisms lipid metabolism, cardiometabolic diseases, and fibrosis; and the application of advanced imaging techniques. His research, mentorship, and many collaborations span disciplines, diseases, and stages of translation. He leads the boards of directors for the Kern Lipid Conferences and the American Physician Scientists Association and serves on the editorial boards of Diabetes, J Biological Chemistry, and Am J Physiology. His presentation will share recent work on nuclear receptor mechanisms and the use of cutting-edge imaging techniques to explore mechanisms and potential treatments for fibrosis and progressive liver and kidney diseases.


Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.

This month's MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series features Dr. Paul Kolm, Associate Director in the Department of Biostatistics and Biomedical Informatics at MedStar Health Research Institute. Dr. Kolm will discuss meta-analysis. Meta-analysis combines the results of several studies to overcome small samples of individual studies and estimate a "true" effect size of some treatment, therapy, etc. There has been a substantial increase in the number of meta-analyses published in the past few years, but many appear to not understand the potential problems of the method and draw incorrect conclusions. We will examine the method, potential problems, and what can and cannot be inferred from the results.
