Bile plays an important role in digesting and absorbing dietary lipids and fat-soluble vitamins, as well as in the elimination of toxins and waste products. Cholestasis is an impairment of bile formation and/or flow, which can originate in the liver or outside it. Wendy van Woerd’s research focuses on ATP8B1 deficiency, a genetic mutation associated with cholestatic disorders. She investigates the underlying mechanisms to see how such mutations result in clinical symptoms and how this knowledge could contribute to new, personalised treatment options.
