A major goal of our current research for Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) involves capturing “the exposome,” or the role of environmental exposures – pollutants, pesticides, medication, diet, etc. – and the associated biological responses to these exposures.

In this video, Mayo Clinic hepatologist, Dr. Konstantinos Lazaridis explains what the exposome is and discusses the significance of this work in elucidating how PSC develops.
