Dr. Liya Pi has focused on the liver and examined reparative processes after local and environmental stresses/injuries. Her research utilizes genetically modified animal models and asks how and why aberrant expression of growth, angiogenic, and fibrotic factors in hepatic microenvironments affects: (1) hepatic progenitor cell activation and ductular reaction, (2) hepatocyte regeneration, (3) extracellular matrix remodeling and liver fibrosis, (4) liver cancer development.
