Day-to-day science within the LiSyM is overseen and directed by the the LiSyM Scientific Leadership Team. This coordination team comprises the pillar coordinators and additional LiSyM members, and ensures smooth interaction between multi-skilled groups, often working in different institutions and across significant distances within Germany.
Dr. Ahmed Ghallab (TU University, Dortmund) deals with chronic liver damage caused by toxins. In addition, he investigates processes associated with cholestasis - when bile accumulates in the bile ducts. Ghallab has been able to explain basic mechanisms of acute cholestasis, using a method for intravital two-photon microscopy, which he developed.
