Dr. Liu’s current studies mitochondrial toxicity induced by anti-retroviral drugs, and in particular, nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). The projects include: 1) structural and functional mitochondrial changes in patas monkey fetuses exposed to human-equivalent antiretroviral protocols during gestation; 2). Metabolic and bioenegetic consequences NRTIs exposures in cardiomyocytes and monkey tissues. 3). the use of chemopreventive agents in reversal of NRTI-induced mitochondrial toxicity.
