Neonatal Cholestasis and Liver Failure
Dr. Memon is actively engaged in several research projects broadly focused on understanding neonatal gut metabolism, liver function and the important relationship between the gastrointestinal tract and the liver. These projects include efforts to characterize dysregulation of the gut-liver axis in newborns receiving prolonged parenteral nutrition, and to identify biomarkers of neonatal liver disease. She also investigates the utility of point of care devices in determining free, unbound bilirubin; and is interested in the developmental regulation of bile acid metabolism in infants. Most recently, Dr. Memon’s clinical research interests have bolstered her preclinical efforts to describe the cellular pathways associated with the dysregulation of bile acid metabolism in animal models of prolonged parenteral nutrition and necrotizing enterocolitis.
