Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis, IN. She was appointed these titles February of 2021 following her post-doctoral fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine under the mentorship of Dr. Heather Francis. Her program focuses on the impact of estrogen signaling on the progression of liver damage in autoimmune liver diseases, and the pathological role of angiogenic signaling during cholestasis. She was recently awarded a pilot award from AASLD Foundation, and a Career Development Award from the VA for her work in these areas. Lindsey has been actively involved in ASIP sponsored events since the beginning of her studies in graduate school, and has attended multiple EB and PISA meetings. These engagements have offered her valuable training opportunities and networking abilities, and this year she was awarded the George K. Michalopoulos Junior Faculty Scholar Award, which is excitingly her first faculty award since her appointment. This year she participated in the ASIP Social Ambassador program and hopes to further her efforts in scientific outreach. Her involvement in the ASIP Liver Pathobiology SIG has been a highlight of her career and she is excited to continue attending EB and PISA, and to see the growth of the organization.
