Dr. Laura James’ research focus is on acetaminophen toxicity and addresses the study of mechanisms of toxicity and biomarkers of toxicity in animal models and clinical samples. The role of the liver’s endogenous response to acetaminophen-mediated liver injury is a major interest in the laboratory’s work in the mouse model. In addition, using “omic” approaches to understand the potential role of acetaminophen in disease expression or disease susceptibility is a focus. Dr. James also oversees clinical trials in children that are addressing the appropriate and safe use of a number of medications in children.
