Biography & Interests
I am nationally recognized for my expertise in pediatric hepatology and liver transplantation and cystic fibrosis liver disease. I am also interested in chronic viral hepatitis, pediatric acute liver failure and chronic pancreatitis.
My research focuses on new therapies for children with hepatitis B and C. I lead a large study that is trying to develop tests that will predict which patients with cystic fibrosis are at risk for the development of advanced liver disease
