Trine Vestergaard Dam

PhD Fellow
Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology


Trine became a member of Associate Professor, Lars Grøntved’s research group in 2017. There, she has been involved in the characterization of transcriptional networks underlying the acute feeding response of the liver and in setting up experimental approaches for the analysis of specific cell types of mouse liver.


Trine has been employed as a PhD student since September 2019 and is working on projects covering hepatic tissue plasticity in obesity and the possible link between disruptions in the circadian behavior of animals and the development of fatty liver diseases. Her main interest is to detangle regulatory networks that govern the behavior of non-parenchymal cell types of the mouse liver during progression of fatty liver diseases and during the acute feeding response of the liver by employing advanced next generation sequencing technologies.
