Dr Leanne Hodson talks about her research on liver fat metabolism.

Understanding liver fat metabolism is extremely important, as the health risks associated with fatty liver disease can include diabetes, heart disease and liver cancer. Fatty liver disease is defined as having over 5 percent liver fat, and a 'silent disease' as many people are not diagnosed. Dr Leanne Hodson is working on finding targets for new medications, which will help lower the risk of accumulating liver fat leading to fatty liver disease.
