Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Through a 3 pronged comprehensive program: translational and clinical research, early detection and treatment, and promoting education, awareness and immunization, we are working towards the development of new strategies that will lead to the elimination of hepatitis B worldwide and reduce the threat and incidence of liver cancer. Our current research efforts focus on evaluating potential new diagnostic and treatment markers and novel targeted therapy for primary liver cancer.
