Tim Kendall is interested in the role of WT1 in liver fibrosis and regeneration, exploring myofibroblast heterogeneity throughout the entire disease process.
The WT1+ mesothelium contributes to the hepatic stellate cell population during development, and after fibrotic liver injury in the subcapsular region; loss of WT1 also influences liver parenchymal development. We aim to characterise the role of WT1 in hepatic stellate cells in fibrotic and non-fibrotic liver injury and regeneration.
Undertook a PhD In the Liver Research Group at the University of Southampton after starting specialist training in Histopathology, and then transferred to Edinburgh to complete clinical training in 2007. Started a Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellowship in 2011, continuing clinical work as Honorary Consultant Histopathologist reporting liver and GI.
