Vitamin A Deficiency
Dr. Harrison’s laboratory studies the basic mechanisms involved in the intestinal absorption, transport, and metabolism of dietary vitamin A and carotenoids using cell culture, animal models, and investigations in human subjects. He is particularly interested in defining the proteins involved in the uptake and metabolism of dietary carotenoids in the intestine.
