Research and Clinical Interests

I am the UCSF/NIH NASH clinical research network pathologist and my research is focused on medical liver disease (in particular NASH), liver transplantation, inflammatory bowel disease, liver/GI neoplasia, and lymphoma diagnosis, prognosis, and molecular treatment targets. I also have ongoing interest in TNF superfamily biology.
