Jorge Matias Caviglia is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Nutrition Sciences.
He conducts research on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which is strongly associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome, and which, following the obesity epidemic, has become the most common liver disease. He uses animal models of NAFLD to better understand the cellular signaling mechanisms that underlie the development of NAFLD. The objective is to identify new ways to prevent and treat this disease.
He teaches Pathophysiology, Micronutrients, and Vitamins and Minerals.
