Lindsay Czuba, PhD
Dr. Lindsay C. Czuba is an Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences with a background in drug transport and metabolism. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology (B.S.) from Syracuse University and a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Her graduate work was performed under the mentorship of Dr. Peter W. Swaan and focused on understanding the structure-function of the human intestinal bile acid transporter, ASBT.
She then joined the lab of Dr. Nina Isoherranen at the University of Washington (Pharmaceutics) for her postdoctoral training. At Washington, her research focused on altered vitamin A and drug metabolism in human obesity and pregnancy.
Her research interests are understanding the regulation of bile acid signaling, transport at the gut-liver axis, and how dysregulated bile acid homeostasis contributes to the pathogenesis of human obesity and associated comorbidities.
