Improving Care by Seeking Novel Treatments

Treating liver disease isn’t just about treating the liver. It requires a multidisciplinary approach that looks at the condition and the patient from a variety of perspectives. Our diverse research team includes:

  • Board-certified transplant hepatologists
  • Board-certified liver transplant surgeons
  • Dedicated clinical research nurses
  • Dedicated clinical research coordinators
  • Social workers
  • Dietitians
  • Pharmacists

With a focus on clinical and translational research, our hepatology research program is involved with a variety of sponsor- and industry-funded clinical trials – as well as investigator-initiated studies in the area of liver disease, cirrhosis and liver transplantation. Our current initiatives include:

  • Clinical trials in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and primary sclerosing cholangitis
  • Designing approaches that reduce readmission rates for liver transplant patients
  • Exploring new therapies for fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, liver cancer, hepatitis C and other liver diseases

We have the experience, equipment and expertise necessary to successfully run clinical trials of all sizes and involving a wide range of patient populations.
