From 2004-2012, Dr. Guo has served as a faculty at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Research Areas

Liver is essential for life and liver functions are tightly regulated. Particularly, the impact of intestine on liver homeostasis, function and diseases is significant, but this impact has been less studied. Our group has been focusing on determining the effects of intestine-liver crosstalks on liver metabolism and pathogenesis and the underlying molecular mechanisms, especially following disruption of endogenous homeostasis and exposure to xenobiotic chemicals.
