The overall mission of the scientific research program in SCFLD and its Hepatology Laboratory is:
- To provide integrated molecular approaches to the study of liver diseases
- To bridge clinical medicine & basic science with the translation of fundamental knowledge toward advancing the treatment of liver diseases
- To train and foster the growth of future clinical investigators in the field of translational hepatology. Our Lab has a diverse research program w/ interest & expertise ranging from molecular biology, virology, cell biology, immunology, systems biology & functional genomics/genetics, which provides a fertile scientific environment for the training of clinical & postdoctoral fellows as well as medical & undergraduate students.
The laboratory offers extensive experience in studying the pathogenesis of liver disease. The laboratory also offers state-of-the-art equipment that would support a full spectrum of research technology needed for diagnostic, clinic & Basic research.
