Unit Director, CTSI- Mentor Consultation Services
My research focuses on natural history of chronic viral hepatitis (hepatitis B and hepatitis C), novel treatments for viral hepatitis, health services/health disparity in viral hepatitis, and evaluation of metabolic abnormalities and pathophysiology of diabetes within the context of hepatitis C and B. My group previously evaluated mechanisms of insulin resistance and secretion in a large cohort of hepatitis C infected patients, and is now examining how HCV affects insulin action among the high risk Latino population. We are studying insulin action over time, with and without HCV treatment, using direct measures of insulin secretion and insulin action. We are also studying the mechanisms of immune response to hepatitis C therapy through the Bay Area Hepatitis C Cooperative Study. Through community and participatory research, we are also evaluating hepatitis B management and liver cancer screening practices in hepatitis B-infected underserved populations including the impact of liver cancer screening on mortality. Our focus on health services research involves evaluation of the impact of educational interventions on patient and provider knowledge, attitudes, and barriers to hepatitis C and hepatitis B care as well as primary care-specialist care coordination and access to care for viral hepatitis. In addition, as one of the clinical research centers for the NIH-funded Hepatitis B Research Network, we are currently working on better understanding the natural history of chronic hepatitis B and the optimal long-term treatment for this disease.
